  1. Locked out of unactivated windows


    Hello,


    Recently bought a computer from ibuypower and couldnt activate windows. Tried last night but it would not let me set up a microsoft account. Today, I am locked out. Before there was no password. Or you could skip it.


    Edit: I should add that every time I try to restart it into safemode it just gives me a blackscreen.

    :)

    Locked out of unactivated windows

    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
