    Transferring Windows 10 License to new pc


    I’ve built a new pc and wish to transfer my license for Windows 10 on my current PC to my new system.

    Windows 10 is currently activated by digital license via free upgrade on my current system.



    I don’t know my current windows product key because it is covered in my settings page, but it is showing as activated via digital license.



    What do I need to do to transfer my windows 10 license from the old pc to the new pc?


    Is it a simple matter of downloading Windows 10 on the new PC and activating it online using the license attached to my account?


    Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 upgrade license

    The interesting question is that: the upgrade takes place before 29 of July. If I upgrade the PC (change the MB), and I transfer the Win 8.1 license to this new PC (cause 8.1 is retail FPP), will I be able to upgrade to Windows 10 for free? Or a upgrade license must be bought?

    Transfer Win 10 license to a new PC

    Hello,

    I bought a new PC and read that I can transfer my Windows 10 license to it and I have a few questions.

    #1

    Few years ago I used Win 7 Pro license to install my two PC's.

    When FREE update came I upgraded both of them to Windows 10 x64 PRO.

    Yesterday I assembled a new PC which will replace one of them and I want to transfer the license to it from the one it is replacing.

    The question is if I transfer the activation license will I lose the activation on the second PC or not?

    What are the steps to do the actual license transfer?
