    Hand-Me-Down Computers and Licensing


    Regarding hand-me-down computers; if I get a new computer during the year, I will gift my old computer (the whole kit and cabooodle) to a family member or friend for Christmas and in some cases I have received their old computer in a swap.


    My first question is; How do I go about transferring the License(s) from my account to the gift receivers account?


    My second question is; How to transfer licenses from a hand-me-down swap?


    And my last question; or are either/both question moot?

    :)

  2. is it possible to hand build a motherboard?

    Might I suggest you simply build a computer, making notes and taking pictures step by step. Most people (probably including your teacher) have no idea even where to start building a computer. You'll do fine, and if you get stuck we're here to help ya out! *Toast :toast:

    Left handed mouse when docked and right handed touchpad when undocked

    Hi,

    I realize that you want the left handed mouse when docked and right handed touchpad when undocked. I will try to help you with this issue.


    • What is the make and model of the computer?
    You can configure the mouse settings for left hand and set the touchpad for normal use.

    Follow these steps to configure the mouse settings:


    • Press Windows key + I to get the Settings screen.

    • Click on Devices and then click on Mouse and Touchpad.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Thank you.
