  1. Transferring license to new computer?


    So I noticed I can change my product key. I am currently using windows 10 home, but I can get windows 10 education for free thru university, and I heard it is better than windows 10 home. Would I be able to change the product key to the one for windows 10 education, and then use the old key on a new machine that I wanted to build as a secondary for my living room?

    :)

  2. How to transfer windows 10 license to a new computer?

    If its the free upgrade originated from an OEM Windows 7 or Windows 8 preinstalled license, it is still not transferrable, even though it says its retail in the command line using slmgr.vbs /dlv command.

    Only licenses upgraded from a retail Windows 8 or Windows 7 or full Windows 10 license.

  3. Digital License after transfer license to new computer

    Uninstalling a product key does not deactivate the license, there is actually no deactivation method. You would still need to contact support to actually invalidate the license on the old machine, so it can reactivate on the new machine.

    Transferring the license is a step by step process.

    First, you either remove the license from the machine by formatting it.

    Install it on the new machine.

    Contact chat support, then reactivate.

    Where Digital license is handy is when you are still using the machine and reinstall Windows 10 and need to reactivate the license after a significant hardware change, such as a hard disk.
