checked licences linked to my microsoft account

Is there a way to check what digital licences are linked to my microsoft account. 

i found a link on the dutch ms account explaining how to reactivate windows 10 after an hardware change. 

the link that explains how to reactivate windows after a hardware change. but it requires that my ms account was linked to my digital licence.

but i cant find:

 if i have added my license to my ms account and since the pc i used died i cant check it.

and i cant see my desktop on devices either. i guess its calling the hotline for help then unless someone here has the golden answer

a i guess something went wrong somewhere. perhaps i had a local account i didnt have to login on every boot i know that. i know i logged in to onedrive and Skype on the windows 10 machine. i guess i can always try to activate. i do ge a new motherboard since mine Died. would it be possible to use my win8 key to activate my win10 or do i have to call the support line

edit: i see that connecting account to digital licentie was possible since the annyversary update and my pc Died before i could do that update. i hope my pc is repaired and ready somewhere this week and ill post my findings here for future references.

In the updates in the past month my PC shows in my account under devices, It has a digital license from the free upgrade from 7 pro, and now it will not activate if updated past v 1709 build 16299.19. It stays activated so long as as it isn't updated the win 10 pro digital license was activated for 2 years and another 3 years before that with 7.

I don't think this question has ever been answered. Right now all my PC's are activated, but all the licenses are the same. So how do we legitimately manage the licenses? I'm not about to shell out $100+ only for it to be converted to yet another digital license that breaks every time I upgrade or reformat.
