    Windows 10 Pro License Transferability


    Hi All

    Thinking of possibly getting a newer system in the future, as current one not much room to upgrade video card inside without losing Bluetooth card, so debating of finally switching from AMD based system to Intel Based System


    Just wondering though since I bought Windows 10 Pro via the Microsoft store, if I could transfer that to the new PC, or would I have to buy Windows 10 Pro again, New system suppose to come with Windows 10 Home

    This System would probably go back to 10 Home with Extra Windows 7 Key possibly, and other little Intel Atom little netop PC probably would go over to Ubuntu Linux build if supported, or discontinue use of that slow machine

    Thank you will read that, and go from there then, if I must stay with Home on future new system, then can manage fine with that til I can afford to buy it again if I have to. Thank you so much for the reply

    On your new computer, you will upgrade the installed Windows 10 Home to Pro by changing the product key to the Windows 10 Pro product key:
    VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T

    Then you will use the Activation Troubleshooter to activate it by transferring the license from the old computer through your Microsoft Account.
