    Transferring digital licence to another microsoft account


    I bought a new laptop yesterday. The seller installed windows 10 I bought the license in the shop. However, they used my mother's details and created a new microsoft account, while I was out and I didn't know that now windows requires microsoft account during first setup.


    I want to transfer the digital license I have 25 digit code to my own microsoft account and remove mom's. But I don't seem to see any options how to do it.


    Thanks!

    :)

    Do those steps:

    • Use the keyboard shortcut Windows-I to open the Settings application.
    • Select Update & Security.
    • Select Activation

    Here you see the current status. If the account has no licence you can click on Add an account, enter your account data and the account gets the license added.

    You can see this in the next step in the same dialog:
