  1. Orphaned Windows 10 Acount


    Hi Brains Trust,


    I have two Windows 10 digital licences attached to my MS account. One is active, the other has been orphaned by me switching the computer back to Windows 7 without unlicencing it.


    What I would like to do is to transfer the orphaned licence to the other computer. Wondering if the "Changed hardware" pathway would do that, or if there is a more graceful pathway that doesn't involve installing Windows 10 on a laptop to only wipe it again...

    :)

    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
