  1. Windows 10 Enterprise generic product key used-how to I go back to Home?


    I recently used a Windows 10 Enterprise product key on my laptop, which had Windows 10 Home pre-installed on it. I tried it out and decided not to get the license and to continue using Home. However, I don't know how to go back to Windows 10 Home! Now there's the dreaded "Activate Windows" watermark glued on the screen, and I have no way of returning to the home license!


    My software came activated, preinstalled on my laptop. It is linked to my Microsoft account.

    • Are you referring to Office Enterprise or Windows 10 Enterprise?
    • Does your copy came pre-installed on your computer?

    In the meantime, we suggest checking the steps in this
    article
    on how to find your Windows product key.

  3. Window 10 installation and activation using Windows 7 Product key

    Hello Sourabh,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    Starting with the November update, Windows 10 (Version 1511) can be activated using some Windows 7,
    Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 product keys. During the free upgrade or installation, you can use a valid Windows 7,
    Windows 8, or Windows 8.1 product key to activate
    Windows 10 (Version 1511 or higher). The following types of product keys are supported:


    • Product keys included in the packaging or the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to your PC that came installed with Windows.

    • Product keys included in the confirmation email you received after buying Windows from an online retailer.

    • Product keys included in the box the Windows DVD came in.

    • Product keys you bought using Windows Anytime Upgrade or Get Genuine Windows.

    • If you bought a Windows 8.1 Pro Pack product key, you can use it to activate
      Windows 10 Pro.

    After Windows 10 is activated, a digital entitlement will be given to your device based on the product key you entered. This means that you’ll no longer need to enter a product key to activate
    Windows 10 on this device.

    On some devices that came pre-installed with Windows 8 or Windows 8.1, the product key is provisioned in the device firmware. On these devices the product key will be verified during setup, and then the appropriate edition of
    Windows 10 will be installed.

    Note:


    • Some Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1product keys can't be used to activate
      Windows 10, such as product keys for volume licensing, including Generic Volume Licensing Keys (GVLK) and Multiple Activation Keys (MAK), and Windows 7 Enterprise,
      Windows 8 Enterprise, and Windows 8.1 Enterprise.

    Keep us posted if you require further assistance.
