    Can you use Windows activation key more than once?

    The only reason i am asking this is because i have a windows 8 disc and activation key sitting on my desk and i was hoping that i could sell it even though it is already activated.

    If you have a one use key, then it can only be used once. If you try to install another copy of Windows and use the same key, it'll deactivate your other Windows.

    Then it will not work, you can't use the key in another machine while is activated in your machine

    OEM Keys won't work (come with computer), but generic keys have activation limits 2 or 5 depending on where it came from. You'd have to call Microsoft to get it reset.
