    Upgrade volume licensing to retail

    I bought a custom made pc installed with Windows 10 pro but it turn out to have volume licensing. Is it possible to change it to retail?

    If possible, how do I go about it and what do I have to purchase?

    Windows 10 Pro Retail or OEM or Volume License

    Hi Raju,

    This is an interesting topic. If the last three letters of your Product ID ends with
    OEM, then your license was issued by manufacturer. These type of licenses cannot be transferred to another computer because it is tied up with the device itself. Otherwise, if it doesn't end with OEM, your copy of Windows is from a retail merchant.
    These licenses can be transferred to another computer. Unless your device was issued by your company, or from an organization, then it could have been activated under Volume licensing.

    To be sure, check the type of license you that you have by following these steps:

    • Open Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type slmgr -dli and press Enter.
    • It will show you a pop up box telling you what type of license you are using.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
