    I can't activate Windows 10


    Hi,I bought a refurbished mini PC that came with Windows 10 Enterprise v22H2 OS build 19045.2251 but I can't activate it. The business I bought it from told me to hold Shift when doing a restart to do a system restore and that this would then allow the 'original' Windows to be activated on it. I did that and Windows still isn't activated.Is there another way to activate Windows? Is the advice I received correct or not?Kind regards,J

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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

    I can't activate Windows 10

    DOWNLOAD WINDOWS 10 NOW - Upgrade and ISO direct from microsoft

    Click to expand... Yeah I went to that site, why do I need to buy a key?
    I won't buy a key, stupid.

    I'll revert back to windows 7 then.

    When I still was on windows 7, about a year ago I added 4GB extra ram which is a total of 8GB now,
    is that causing the problem?
