  1. Question Regarding Activation in Windows 10


    I want to know, what would happen if Windows 10 is used without activation. I came to know through one of my friend that Windows 10 comes for free,officially. He directed me to this website https://www.microsoft.com/en-in/software-download/windows10, to corroborate his statement.


    He further told me that even if Windows 10 is not activated, it is genuine. If it is not activated, I can't personalize Windows the way I want, otherwise, all other things are accessible and even Windows Defender could be used without hassles, he claimed.


    Now, I couldn't really believe that and had to come here for a detailed explanation whether he is correct or not, and that what will happen if it is not activated. Also, please tell me how long Windows 10 could be run without activation.

    :)

    Windows 10 activation question

    do the upgrade
    it should activate automatically when online
    if you want todo a clean install after that simply boot from your windows 10 installation media and when prompted for a key during install/post install select skip ..
    it will re-activate within 5M of being online

    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
