    I don't think it's the same as the 10Home key but where is the/my Pro key to view?
    I've read elsewhere it's supplied with the order/account (MS store) but can't find it..!

    Now, where is that key stored in case I ever need it (install)?

    ProduKey is flagged (by Defender) as POS - no way to run the exe?!

    you can see your established products here: https://account.microsoft.com/devices/
    click manage to see the type of product and what it is linked to and what version of windows is allowed.
    as your key is tied to your processor you can't really do much besides install windows to the device shown there.

    Hi,
    I have only Manage Device Limits there and no key what I see.
    Do I need that key for a clean 10Pro installation?
    I got the key with 10Home but nothing with 10Pro?
    I plan a clean install after the May update is out .

    If you're doing a clean install on the same system, it should auto-activate by itself.

    assuming your key allows for pro, that's why i linked the devices as it should show what type of license it is.

    as mentioned earlier I upgraded to Pro hence it should activate Pro

    Again, as above, I can not find what you are referring to... nothing in my account

    your key wont be listed there as it should be tied to the processor and automatically allow for 10 Pro, if your device is missing you should contact M$ because i had the same issue when i transferred out a hard drive and they had to give me a key to allow me to access it again.
