Laptop Stolen

My parents' laptop were stolen yesterday.

It had Win10 on which was bought separately and didn't come pre-installed on the laptop.

Is there a way to remove the licence from the stolen laptop so that it can be used on a replacement?

Thanks

Yes - you will need to contact Microsoft support to get Windows activated on the new hardware.

If your parents used a microsoft login on the laptop, check here

There are a few things one could possibly do from there.
