    Activating Windows 10


    A few days ago I reinitialised my Asus PC following problems connecting to the internet. The problem was resolved, but in the process I accidentally deleted Windows 10, so when I try to open my documents using Office 2010 it doesn't work. Following advice on this forum I downloaded Windows 10 again but still no luck. I'm currently using WordPad to open documents (also as suggested on the forum) but need to know how to reactivate Windows 10 now I've downloaded it. Can anyone help please (using simple terminology!) Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?

    this search might help you https://www.google.com.au/webhp?sou...o+to+get+it+activated+windows+10+blocked+keys

    From http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/why-activate-windows-10

    If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free and ended up in a non-activated state, try following these steps:

    • Go to Start
      Activating Windows 10 [​IMG]
      , then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.
    • Select Go to Store, and check to see if a valid license is available for your device. If a license isn't available, you'll need to buy Windows from the Store.

      Note
      • This only applies if you haven't made changes to the hardware for your device.

    or you could hack it with a crack but please note this is always risky and you don't know what's in the hack
