    Hello
    I'd like to know if I can transfer a windows 7 product key (from an old computer that I don't need anymore) to windows 10 (new computer).
    What I mean is by downloading this;
    https://www.microsoft.com/fr-fr/software-download/windows10ISO
    (This is the ISO file but its because I'm on the internet with an android device)
    And filling out the downloaded file (downloaded from a USB and filling out the form in the new computer) with that product key.
    I thank you in advance :)

    Is the old computer an OEM.....like HP, Dell, Asus? If so, then most likely it's a No, do to the fact of the OEM OS limitations...as it's not transferable.

    No.
    The 'transfer' of the key is to install Win 10 on the same computer as Win 7 is installed. Not to a new or different computer.
