  1. Transfer Windows 10 Home key on new PC Help


    My current PC has Windows 10 Home OEM installed on it that was installed via physical disk that I purchased when I built it. I want to use the same key to reinstall Windows 10 on my new machine, but I don't want to use them both simultaneously. I don't intend on using my current machine after that, just want to save a couple dollary-doos by reusing my current copy of W10.

    Is there a way to "deactivate" my current Windows 10 installation on my current PC, then install Windows 10 with the same product key on my new PC (on a different storage device) without running into licensing problems?

    I have done a fair bit of research and have yet to come across a thread with an identical problem as mine, but many similar threads with issues that are similar to this. Feel free to post a thread if this has been asked before.

    *Edit: I currently have W10 activated with a digital license linked to my Microsoft Account.

    Thanks!

    Need help with transferring Windows 10 to new PC

    *Nevermind I figured it out. I just bought a license key for $29.00. Thx though.
    So my friend asked me to build him a new computer for work. The last one I built him was during the windows 7-10 upgrade grace period. I used to load windows 7, use windows loader to put in a product key, activate it, then upgrade to windows 10. Now that the grace period is over, and I'm working with new hardware, I was wondering if it is possible to install windows 10 from an already functioning computer that operated on a sata SSD to a new computer with an m.2 nvme SSD, using just the product key from the current windows 10 off of his computer. I use a program that grabs the product key called ProduKey.
    Should I do a fresh install of windows 10 using his key after deactivating it from his current PC , instead of cloning drives correct? It would be nice not to have to pay microsoft $200 for windows 10 if he already has it and plans on not using his old pc anymore.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Installing Windows 10 using Windows 7 key

    Nope, you need to install Windows 10 first and make sure the Windows 7 key is transferred to your Windows account after you've installed Windows 10 (not quite sure how that works). I missed the last step and I could not activate Windows 10 after a re-install... Microsoft seem to have done everything they can to make it a PITA. Also, it's technically too late to do this now anyhow, as the upgrade offer has expired. But KMSPico works quite well...

    As for getting rid of Windows, delete the Windows folder.
