Linking Windows Product Key To Your Microsoft Account

Linking Windows Product Key To Your Microsoft Account

Linking your Microsoft account to the product key is very handy should you need to re-activate Windows 10 later on the same computer, because you have reinstalled the Windows, or you have a new computer and needs to migrate your Windows installation on the new computer. Basically it is for backup and safekeeping purpose.

Obviously, you’ll need to have a Microsoft account, you can create one here, if you do not have one yet.

 

Once you have an account, log into Windows by going to Settings > Update & Security > Activation > click 'Add an account' then sign in to your Microsoft account and you are done.

Once linked, you should now see  a message that says 'Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account'.
