    winver after upgrade


    What does it mean if under your licensed name in winver it also says Mictosoft?
    I upgraded from 8.1 Pro to 10 Pro using the Microsoft tool since I got tired of waiting for my reservation. After running a day or 2 fully activated I did a clean install and now it lists Microsoft under my name also.
    Thanks

    How to know if you can transfer your Windows 10 license to a new - Microsoft Community

    if this is true then it just means your W10 license is transferable.

    Do a clean install, make the first account on the PC a Microsoft User Account and when it activates, winver will indicate the Windows 10 is licensed to that user.

    Do a clean install, make the first account on the PC a local account and when it activates, winver will indicate the Windows 10 is licensed to that username. I clean installed on a desktop and the first account I created was a local account with username Kodi because that was the account I was going to run Kodi - the multimedia program from. So now my winver says Windows 10 is licensed to Kodi. Dang, did I just transfer my Windows 10 license to the creators of Kodi?

    "Licensed to" on a clean install will simply point to the first account created on the computer and means, pretty much, nothing.

W10 Insider Prev upgrade to Win10 full vs of W7/8 upgrade to W10
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?

Hi there I'm surprised there's been NO comments on this yet (at least none that I've seen). If you run WINVER on build 9926 it shows the panel with an expiry date of OCT 1 2015 -- good reason for people to upgrade if they haven't done so...
