  1. Problems with activating windows 10


    Hello.


    I have this desktop which should have windows fully installed, but in the lower right corner of my screen I have the following message displayed; "Activate Windows. Go to settings to activate windows." I have tried everything. Running a trouble shoot, reinstalling windows and researching on the official website. I've tried the MediaCreation tool mutliple times, but without luck. When I run trouble shoot it says that I have a license for Windows 10 home but have Windows 10 Pro installed. When I use the MediaCreation tool I have no option to choose the Windows version I want installed and it just reinstalls Windows 10 Pro.


    Please help.

    :)

    Windows 10 Activation (Insider)

    How long did you wait for activation?
    When I re-installed with a fresh install... it took a few hours to sync and activate.
    However, it did, finally, activate.

    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?

    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
