  1. Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account - How to reinstall


    My Windows 10 results from Windows 7 being freely upgraded and is classified as

    'Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account'

    It is Windows 10 Pro, Version 10.0.17134.


    I may need to do one of two things:


    1. Reinstall windows on my current computer


    2. Junk my current and install windows on a new computer.


    Can someone tell me if I will have license problems?

    :)

    Link Microsoft Account to Windows 10 Digital License


    Hey, I have a question.
    Do you think the digital license is saved on my MSA after i changed back to my local account?

    What I mean by that:
    I Added MSA to my Windows 10 and it said in Activation tab "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account", and my PC was in device list of my MSA.
    But I don't like the fact that I have to type in password every time I boot up. It's my private PC, I don't need password, I never had. So I switched back to my Local account. But now it's back to "Windows is activated with a digital license" only, and the PC is also gone from the device list on my MSA account.
    Do you think it actually unlinked the license, or maybe because I logged in once, it saved anyway, and I will be good with activating in the future on a changed machine?

  4. Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account - How to reinstall

    Linking Windows 10 digital license to Microsoft account: Is the link permanent?

    Linking to your Microsoft Account is more of a convenience when reactivating Windows 10 after a reinstallation or hardware change such as a hard disk.

    It doesn't necessarily mean, you can easily transfer Windows 10 to another computer. Here is an explanation of how it works:
