I recently had a system crash and ordered a refurbished workstation computer. it came with WIN10 installed (license key etc). I have since gotten my older system working again but would like to pass this new system to my son. (he lives with his family 2 hours from me)

I signed on to Win10 on the new system just to get back online. Is there a way to re-license the software to him? I've only had this for a week or so, and now don't need it.

Will he need to purchase a new license or can he just use mine as a 'user' and then make him administrator? I just don't need 2 desktop computers right now. he'll just buy this one from me for what I paid. it's a nice workstation and has a warranty. we just aren't sure how to work the Windows 10 software.
