    Product Key Transfer

    I have Windows 7 OEM Home Basic Genuine Product Key on the bottom of my laptop, and I've upgraded it to Windows 10 Home. When I search for the product key using product key finder, I saw that is "Full-Packaged Product" media. That I know, the "Full-Packaged
    Product" media can be transfer to another machine (computer). How about I transfer my own product key (Windows 10) from laptop to my desktop computer, and I completely uninstalled my Windows OS on laptop and changed it to other OS (such as Ubuntu, Linux Mint,
    etc.). Is this completely legal?

    Need your advice.

    Thanks.

    Forgot to deactivate old computer's product key before transferring the product key to another computer

    The old device is not in use by anybody and unfortunately the edu product key is still installed on it, and the device is not with me.

    Is there any way that can remotely transfer the product key to my new computer without accessing the old computer?
