    Transfer Windows 11 Pro key to a new computer


    Hi,I bought a PC with Windows 11 Home preinstalled OEM key I guess. I then upgraded to Windows 11 Pro from the Microsoft Store.That PC is getting old so I have bought a new PC with Windows 11 Home preinstalled. Is it possible to transfer the Windows 11 Pro key that I bought earlier to the new computer? I don´t get that option when I open the Microsoft Store. It tells me to buy a new key.I have tried to unregister the key in the old PC.slmgr /upkslmg /cpkyThanks,

    :)

    I built a new computer running windows 11 home. Can I transfer my product key from my old windows 10 Pro?

    How can I transfer my license to my new PC? I have verified it's a retail copy but I can't activate the product key and the upgrading hardware step doesn't list my new PC.

    Do I need Windows 11 Pro or should the 10 Pro key automatically upgrade me?

    How do I do this?

    Windows 11 Home to Pro upgrade

    Want to upgrade 11 Home to 11 Pro. Tried download, but apparently files transferred were for 11 Enterprise. This will not activate; error is "invalid digital license or product key". This is on a new Surface. How to proceed?

    Can withdraw/delete this. The suggestion to downgrade - listed below - with a 'fake' windows 10 key works.

    Transfer Windows 11 Pro Upgrade to new computer

    Hi

    Back in April 2022 I decided to upgrade my Windows 11 Home to Pro on my stationary computer.

    I did so by buying the upgrade in the Microsoft Store App.

    The installation / upgrade went smooth.
    The only communication from Microsoft that I got was a receipt of the purchase via email. This email does not include any product license key. And from what I have understood, this is normal when you purchase an upgrade through the store.

    But it also means that I have no idea what that product key is.

    For various reasons I now needed to replace my desktop with a laptop.

    The new laptop came with Windows 11 Home installed on it and naturally I want to transfer my Pro upgrade to this new computer.

    But even if I go in to the Microsoft Store App and go to the Windows 11 Pro Upgrade product, it only shows that I can either buy it (again) or I can select that I already have a product key, which I don't.

    So how exactly can I transfer my Pro Upgrade license to my new laptop and take it off my old computer (if that is required?).

    Cheers
