  1. Activation


    Hi!


    I am having major issues activating my windows 10 since the new update. I got a pop up message for weeks saying that my licence would expire soon, but it won't let me use the product key (found though using the command prompt). After messing up for a while after it deactivated itself, it now says it can't connect to organisations activation server. Problem is, I had windows 10 Home (downloaded from windows 8.1), and not the enterprise edition! Something to do with downloading Office from my university maybe?


    Some research has suggested that it could be an issue with the DNS servers, but I flushed them and it still wouldn't accept my original product key. I don't have another device that could help me activate it either!


    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Activation :)

    :)

  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.
