    Default 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.
