    Windows 10 retail license linked to Microsoft account


    Hi there!

    I have a doubt regarding my Windows 10 license.

    Some time ago I bought a retail license and now in the Windows configuration section the following message appears: "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account". The thing is that I don't use that account anymore (hotmail) since now I use Outlook.

    Is it possible to use my license number (in case I change my computer) or do I have to use my old mail? I mean, can I log in into my new outlook account and activate Windows by using my license number or is it required to use my hotmail account to which now it says that it is linked?

    Thanks!

    :)

    Hello Steve, and welcome to Ten Forums. Windows 10 retail license linked to Microsoft account :)

    What build of Windows 10 do you currently have installed?

    *Arrow https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/2...mber-find.html

    Starting in build 14371, if you see this part highlighted in yellow below in Settings -> Update & security -> Activation from step 7 in the tutorial posted above, then the PC's digital license is linked to your MSA.
