    its that call ms 800 number, that got me disinterested in the digital key option, I've heard many bad things about it, way back to windows XP, and its usually someone from abroad who is very hard to understand, making the process even harder, i also have social difficulties due to an illness, which makes it even harder for me, so i was hoping the digital option would spare me those pains, but as you've shown, that's not really the case.

    And yes, storing the keys on a single .txt file on my NAS device would be super easy and awesome, but its not the keys that are the problem, I've only recently obtained a NAS, and that's a very good additional use for it, computers for me are mainly a Hobby, and so these obstacles are very off putting, and i don't want to derail the subject, but i also wanted to add, that my experience with windows 10, is the worse in my 25 years of computers, not a single windows/linux I've used have had this many problems, am spending weeks on end trying to fix then, this is my second attempt at getting the operation system to work properly, so activation is only one of about 60+ issues am getting just now, i counted them, i had to make a list in order to keep track, it was that bad.

    anyway, am not sure if i will be buying more yet, if i can't get this operation system to work properly, but any additional obstacles will definitely put me off more.

    thanks for your help, btw.

    The 800 phone call to MS is a computer. It asks you to say or enter the installation ID. Then it comes back and asks you how many computers are installed with this copy of Windows. You answer "one". The computer returns the activation ID. With the retail product keys you are allowed a certain number of activations within a certain time frame before you even have to call the number, though.

    Sorry to hear about the problems you are having with Windows 10. It runs perfectly on about 10 computers on my home network.

    good to hear your having no issues, i wish i could say the same, yeah its just terrible right now, i have 12+ computers and about 3+ laptops, nothing seems to like windows 10, Ubuntu and 7 work fine on all of them, but not 10, i find i have to disable a lot of windows 10's security's and other stuff in order to increase its stability, its better than it was when i last used it a few years ago, but its still quite unstable, this is closest i have gotten to getting it stable though, so fingers crossed.
