  1. HP Windows 10 activation issue


    My HP Pavilion 24 says that Windows 10 is no longer activated and of course the warranty just expired. HP wants me to renew the warranty for a few hundred dollars and ship them the machine to get it fixed. From what I understand there's a utility that they use to "tattoo" the serial number in the BIOS. Could anybody help me get my hands on this utility?

    Also it is all OEM hardware, there have been no repairs, replacements or upgrades.

    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
