I'm using a licensed Windows 10 Home.
Is there any information on whether or not the licence is retained when i clean install windows 11 or do i have to manually update from win10 to get it for free?
Microsoft hasn't release the Windows 11 yet.
However, according to the announcement, there would be a free upgrade offer for those who are using Windows 10 to the Windows 11 (as long as the device is compatible) and once you upgrade (during the time which Microsoft offering the upgrade), your Windows 10 license will be used to activate Windows 11 if your PC is already activated and you are upgrading to the correct edition (Windows 11 Home in your case).
Microsoft will release more details when Windows 11 released to the public.
