    Window 10 licence


    Please I took the advantage of the free upgrade to window 10 from 8.1 home single language.
    My system crashed initially and i then took it for a fix bit they install windows 10 pro now I'm seeing that my key is not genuine.

    Please if I reinstall windows 10 home, can I recover my digital licence?

    I'm getting window will soon expire so what do you think

    :)

    Same Windows 10 on two machines?

    Windows 10 is generally licenced to the system it is installed on.

    However, if the Windows 10 licence is a retail licence or your system was upgraded to Windows 10 from a retail licenced copy of a previous version of Windows, then you will be able to transfer the licence to the new PC

    You cannot of course expect the same licence to run on both systems, if it is not a volume licence!!

    If you mean a Windows 10 licence then it is one licence per device. One licence for a laptop and one licence for a tablet.

    Window 10 licence

    Just make sure to download and reinstall Windows 10 Home Single Language. It should retrieve the existing digital license from Microsoft activation servers and activate itself. There is also, probably a Windows 8.1 Home Single Language product key stored in the computer's bios that you can retrieve using Showkey Plus from this forum.

    Thanks for the quick response, is there any way to change to HOME from PRO without having to use disc image or installation disc.. Or can it be done from the latest update release

    Going from Pro to Home Single Language will require a clean install, which must be done by booting the computer from a Windows 10 installation USB flash drive or DVD.
