  1. Downgrading from Windows 10 Pro to Windows 10 Home


    I bought a second hand laptop not too long ago, but it come with Windows 10 Pro already on it. It's now expired and I have no way to reactivate it. My question is can I buy an Activation Code for Windows 10 Home and use that or will i have to buy a new Windows 10 Pro Key? Any help on this will be massively appreciated as it's about €100 difference in price.

    :)

    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

    Windows 10 Release Date Announced

    Windows 10 Home will be $119, Pro $199.

    Microsoft: Windows 10 Home costs $119, Pro costs $199



    Which is good news actually, because Windows 8.1 is loads cheaper than previous versions (retail licensing at Windows 7 OEM prices). And it sort of puts a huge hole in the Windows subscription theory.
