    Activation


    I'm trying to activate Windows on my Laptop. A few years ago I was happily using Windows 7 then started getting pressurised into downloading windows 10, which I eventually did. But now I can't activate it and I'm getting the following message - ' We found a Windows 10 Home digital license for this device running Windows 10 Pro. To activate using this digital license you need to install Windows 10 home.

    How to do this I've no idea as it was Windows that provided the download for me in the first place. I tried 'chat' but they won't phone me as I live in Turkey. I have no wish to spend money on something I've already got.

    Any ideas anybody?

    :)

  2. Taskbar bug: switching to another window -will not appear at the front


    Follow either of these steps to fix the issue with the Active window hiding behind.

    Method 1:
    I suggest you to disable window by hovering over it with the mouse and check if it helps. To do so I suggest you to try the below given steps and check if it helps:

    1. Press Windows key + X key and click on Control Panel.
    2. Select or click Ease of Access.
    3. Click or tap onEase of Access Centre.
    4. Click on Make the Mouse Easier to Use was uncheck Activate Window by hovering over it with the mouse.
    5. Check if issue is resolved.
    Method 2:
    I would suggest you to completely uninstall the touchpad driver and reinstall it. Kindly follow the below given steps.

    1. Press “Windows key + X” and click on “Device Manager”.
    2. In the list of devices, you should see the touchpad drivers.
    3. Right click on the device and then select "Uninstall".
    4. In the uninstall dialog, make sure you select the option to delete the driver package from the system. This causes the driver package installed earlier to be deleted.
    5. In the Action menu of Device manager, select “Scan for Hardware changes” option. This will cause the device driver to be reinstalled. Once the driver is installed, close all windows and restart the computer.
