  1. Givin a friend an older computer with Windows 10


    Hello,


    I was wondering since I have a windows key for it that was purchased in a store. Is it possible to un-link it from my account to give it to a friend so my information and theirs are not connected? The computer originally had Windows XP pro (refurbished). I just added some extra ram and went an bought windows 10 on a USB drive that came with a key. My concern is just not having it linked to my Microsoft account so it would truly be theirs. Any input on how to do this would be great, because I built 2 other computers that are a little more up to date an no longer need it.


    Thanks

    :)

    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
