Not normally a Windows user, but am considering purchasing a brand new desktop PC with Windows.

Is it even possible to note a license key for future use with Windows 10?

Yes you can use Nirsoft's ProduKey utility to extract it.

However, unless it's a "Retail" version license of Windows (i.e. didn't come with the PC and you bought it separately and it's designated as retail and not OEM / System Builder), you're not permitted to move it to another PC, and activation will likely fail.
