  1. Transfer Win 10 Pro Licence to a new Win 10 Home PC


    I bought a Laptop with Win 7 in July 2012.


    In January, 2013, I bought a Win 8 Pro licence through the promotion that was running at the time.


    I have since update the original Win 7 PC, to Win 8 Pro, to Win 10 Pro and it now is running Win 10 update 1903.


    I bought a new laptop with Win 10 Home this week. I will be retiring the original Laptop purchased in 2012.


    Can I transfer my Win 10 Pro licence on the retired laptop to the new Laptop ?


    I am getting mixed answers from the Sales people.

    :)
