    Win 10 Setup in the same laptop after format


    Hello, below is what I currently see in Activation section under the Windows Settings of my Asus laptop.

    I will be formatting the laptop and installing Win 10 Pro fresh via the same USB bootable media as I did before.
    My query is during the Win 10 setup do I enter the same product key in the Activate Windows time or click the red highlighted option? I am bit confused by the blue highlighted lines in the image below...hence thought of clarifying.

    You should not have to enter a key, you already have a digital license stored on the Microsoft Servers.

    You are correct. It will activate automatically since you are already registered with MS with a valid key. You're good to go.
