  1. Can't connect my windows 8 computer with my windows 10 computer


    I have a virtual windows 8 computer and a windows 10 computer. What I actually want is to share files between them.

    The problem with them is that they can't connect with each other using same the home group. I have made all the necessary options in both computers such as turning on network discovery and turning on file and printer sharing. My network is also private.

    I made a homegroup in one of my pc but the other computer can't find it and vice versa. Please help me in this.

    Thank you in advance.

    :)

  2. How to reinstall Windows 10 if my computers used the free upgrade from 7 and 8?

    Will windows 10 still accept the license keys from 7 and 8 now if I reinstall my computer?

    Does Microsoft keep a list of users who upgraded to Win 10 using their 7 and 8 keys so that when users need to reinstall windows 10 the old keys would work?

    Do I need to call in Microsoft to ask them to activate my Windows 10 when I give them my win 7 keys?

    Both computers are laptops. The windows 7 machine had the serial printed on the back, and I needed to enter that when I upgraded to 10. The windows 8 machine had the serial built in inside its boot system so I didn't need to enter the key when I upgraded to 10, but I did manage to write down the keys using a fetcher program.

    DTS supported natively by Windows 8/8.1 and it should work on windows 10 too just DDL require to unlock your driver .

    How to reinstall Windows 10 if my computers used the free upgrade from 7 and 8?

    Your ild keys should work but if you registered the key to your online ms persona (email address) it should be tied to your account , install without a key login with your credentials , then activate.
