Yes, most newer computers come with a built-in Windows license when you buy it.

This is quite convenient for users, because it will not take time to download the Windows installer on the network, then have to learn how to install Windows.

All you need to do is update and update. Whenever there is a new version, you only need to update it to the latest version.

When you feel that the Windows operating system is too slow, you can reset Windows through an available feature on the operating system to restore the computer to the new state. It is very convenient for users.

However, for some reason you lose copyright on your computer. It could be because you reinstalled Windows, but it did not automatically reactivate your license, or it could be because you accidentally installed a different version of Windows than your factory version.

I take for example, previously your computer had Windows 10 Home copyright, but when you install the Windows 10 Pro version, you will surely lose your copyright.
