Product key uses

I bought and installed the Windows 10 Home USB retail version. I want to know if I can use the USB drive and product key again or not?

One license, one system.
You can read the EULA.

Wait! You mean the text that no one really reads, just clicks accept?

People will sell their organs one day to software companies :)

Uhh, nobody? I think it's a terrible idea to accept an agreement without reading it. Who knows what you're accepting when you don't read it? (I am not trolling, I literally make myself read every EULA / TOS I am prompted.)

Absolutely agreed.

That was a sarcastic comment as users usually don't bother reading the contract they actually agree upon.

Well, 99% of the population doesn't do what they should be doing. Some agreements obligate you to carefully read them, meaning that not reading them could be a violation. (Some of them, but most of them don't.)

I remember some company did something like putting "you have to pay us this and that much every month" in their EULA.

Though eventually they got sued by misconduct and they lost the lawsuit even though people agreed to what the EULA said. The main argument was something like it's not the usual place for monthly fee agreement to state. And the company was counting on the fact that the majority of the users don't read the EULA.

But let's say I need the thumb drive to reinstall Windows on the same system?

Same system, different system, it does not matter so long as you have it only on one system.

But I should indeed keep the USB drive right?

Yes.
