  1. Transfer Windows 10 license from laptop to desktop


    I have joined Windows Insider program and got a free Windows 10 Pro license. Everytime I reinstall Windows 10 Pro OS on my laptop it's will be activated automatically. I wonder that license is OEM or retail channel?

    I just bought a new desktop (not laptop), I would like to transfer the free license from my old laptop to the new desktop, is it possible?

    Thanks so much for answering!!

    :)

  2. Windows 10 license transfer

    Thanks Andre.

    i bought the license. My laptop was originally loaded with win 7 and was upgraded free couple of months.

    in this case, if i understand you correctly, i can transfer with below steps. Right.?

    let me buy my new laptop and try below.

    and to my question do you have an update.

    does OS upgrades if my activation key is changed.

    thanks

    sai

  4. Transfer Windows 10 license from laptop to desktop

    Transferring Windows 10 License from laptop to desktop

    I am having trouble figuring out how to transfer my Windows 10 license (or whether it's even possible). My laptop originally had Windows 7 which I upgraded to Windows 8 Pro via a free copy provided by my college to students. That was then upgraded for free
    to Windows 10, and now that my laptop is failing I am trying to see if I can transfer the digital license tied to my Microsoft account to my new desktop.

    I did some digging here and
    I found a post
    that linked
    this article
    that mentioned if I had upgraded from a retail copy of Windows 8 means I had a one-time transfer I could use. Since I haven't done this before I should (according to the article) have one available. I tried following the steps given in the
    article along with the related article linked in the post and

    the tips given here
    but I have not gotten it too work. I'm not sure if I'm missing some steps along the way and/or it is not possible for me but any help would be appreciated.
