Is it possible to transfer Windows 10 with everything in it from a laptop to a desktop using an M.2 SSD?

So currently on my laptop I have everything stored on an HDD with licensed Win10, however I am going to clone that HDD onto the M.2 SSD, and then try and use that SSD on my new desktop, and then format the HDD completely. The laptop in question is an Acer VX5-591G and the mobo I'm using for the desktop is a ASRock B450M Pro4, will this transfer be possible?

Yes, 100% possible.  Will it work? Probably not well.  Windows will see a new motherboard and need activation again.  Drivers and al that are incorrect, and may work just fine or be wonky.
