    Windows 10 IoT

    Open the System Screen, right click the button and select system. Activation status is shown on that screen. I don't understand your second question?

    Full activation details can be seen In Command Prompt (Admin). Type the following command and press Enter:

    slmgr.vbs /dlv
    or this one alone for further investigation:

    Run winver - either from a command prompt or from the search box. Look for the build number. You want to see 10240.

    From an elevated command prompt ("run as administrator" command prompt) type slmgr /xpr
    That will tell you your activation expiration. You want to see "permanently activated".
    If you see build 10240, permanently activated, you are good to go, you won't get anything higher than that.

    Do you mean use a local account rather than a Microsoft account? Or do you mean automatically log a user in when the computer starts up? You don't need a clean install for either of those. Changing an existing account to a local user or adding a local user is done in Settings, under accounts. Setting up automatic login is done by running netplwiz from either a command prompt or the search box.

    it's by probability

    not have to sign in = not have to sign, local acc

    automatically log a user = how do i automatically login


    clean install

    someone mention this earlier = bad information

    permanently activated

Windows 10 product key?
I want to clean install Windows 10 on my HTPC and remain an insider. Will it ask for a product key? Can I use my 8.1 product key? I found an ISO that I am going to try so that I don't have to install 8.1 and 1,000 updates.

This is just a question out of curiosity. Did anyone get asked to type in the product key? I saved it to a text file but I don't remember being asked for it when I installed Windows 10.
