    Still confused


    1. Now if and when I upgrade my laptop to Windows 11 when it comes to activate it I am still unsure if one can use the activation key currently used for Windows 10 to activate Windows 11.

    2. I have checked with Showkey Plus and have two keys listed - one as the installed key and one that is the OEM key and confused as to which of these two keys I will need to use??

    Any help appreciated.

    You won't have to do anything. Just clean install or upgrade and it will activate all by itself.

    Or, by In-Place Upgrade. Either way.



    Go to Settings > Update & Security > Activation ...if it looks like this, you're covered.

    Well mate I would rather wait until the bugs have been sorted out and find out how I swap over my security provider to 11 and desktop settings that I prefer -transparency for example and using software like Open Shell etc.

    I did an In-Place upgrade... everything transferred over, even Bitdefender Internet Security.

    Up to you, ofc.
