    How the Microsoft Digital License works for Multiple PCs Links?


    Hi, I'm trying to figure out how the Microsoft Digital License works for the following scenario:


    I have 3 machines (1 PC + 2 Notebooks), namely 1 x Windows 10 Professional and 2 x Windows 10 Home and Iíve login as main administration account to use all these machines.

    How does the Windows 10 Digital License keeping track with my Microsoft Account login to identify of my machines license entitlement? The configuration are:

    1. 1 x Notebook was originally Windows 7 OEM upgraded to 8.1 then to Windows 10

    2. 1 x PC Desktop was originally Windows 8.1 OEM upgraded to 10

    3. 1 x recently purchased Notebook c/w Windows 10 pre-installed.


    Now I would like to upgrade two of my machines (*Above 1 & 2) to SSD disks and Iím planning to use the Microsoft media tool clean installation of Windows 10 method which I will back up all the personal data and then reset these two machines to eliminate the possibility of files corruptions in the existing hard disks , as I hope to fix the Windows 10 slow performance and non-responsive issue?

    I would appreciate anyone in this Community can help to provide for a good solution.
    Thank you and best regards.

    I’ve login to my MSA & verified that all the 3 machines serial numbers and Windows 10 version are all registered.

    You're welcome, It was a good question, as others might see the thread and go there too.
    From there you can also remove any devices you don't have any more.
