One PC, two accounts, one licence?

Copper Contributor

Hello there,

I'd like to know if I need two separate Windows 10 licences if I want to use one PC but with two different A/D accounts. The background is that my company wants to give every employee one account with and one account without admin rights.

Thank you for your help.

Hello @X-CASE,


Usually, Windows 10 license follows 'one license per machine' policy. Hence, IMO, you only need one license for the PC. Number of accounts is independent of license unless your accounts have a Windows 10 subscription.
