    If I reset my pc with the windows 10 (keeping the files or remove everything) will it reinstall the windows 10 without problems, for example: will it ask me a activation key (product key) because the windows 10 now is not free? Or if it asks me, can I use the activation key that I used when I bought this pc with the windows 8.1?

    I just don't want to make a mistake and lose the windows 10

    If you reset your PC, your Windows 10 license will still activate. During the OOBE setup process, choose enter key later and proceed. Once you are connected to the internet with or without your Microsoft account your PC will automatically activate.

    it will reinstall without issues 99.99% of the time and solve any issues that you did have prior to the reset
