Microsoft makes minor change to activation rules for Windows 10

In an announcement made via the release notes for Build 14371 of Windows 10 this week, Microsoft has revealed that it is making a slight change to its activation rules for the Windows 10 OS.

The release notes for Windows 10 Build 14371 -- in which Microsoft has revealed a forthcoming minor change to its activation rules for Windows 10 -- were published in the Feedback Hub, which is available only to Windows Insider Program’s registered members running a preview edition of Windows 10.

The tweaked activation rules for Windows 10 will likely be effective with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update -- underscoring version 1607 -- which Microsoft is expected to launch on July 29, 2016.

Though the details related to the change coming to the Windows 10 activation rules are somewhat confusing, a brief conclusion drawn about the change indicates that, starting with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update, it will be possible for users to link a Windows 10 digital license with a Microsoft account.

The linkage will apparently take place automatically for users who are signed in with a Microsoft account when they get the Anniversary Update.
