    Default Windows 10 rollback to 8.1 - does it keep my Win10 activation status?

    Strangely, this question has been asked in only a couple of places so far, with no usable answer.

    I have a purchased laptop with valid Win 81 reg. I upgraded it to Windows 10, which properly activated. For various reasons I have now rolled it back to Win 81. I will try Win10 again near the end of this year.

    --> Question: At that time. although it will be past the July free upgrade deadline, will my already-activated Win10 license remain valid?

    I *think* it will be valid. But does anyone actually know? Has this been answered somewhere by Microsoft?

    Yes it will remain valid, and you wil be able to install and activate your Windows 10 then successfully.
