Thanks for posting that link - good advice!

For anyone who has replaced a factory OEM Product Key with a retail one, keep in mind you can at any time go to Computer>Properties to Change Key to the Product Key on COA sticker.

This will make available the retail license to use on any other computer so you continue getting the $100+ value of the Factory OEM Product Key.

If the Change Product Key link is missing, open an Elevated Command Prompt
type slmgr -ipk followed by a space and the full Product Key, then activate at Computer Properties or using slmgr -ato.
