    Re-using brand new windows 10


    Hi - I bought a PC without an OS and bought windows 10 from Currys UK for it. I put the windows in and tried the computer but didn't like it - (too noisy). I sent it back the next day and got my money back - bought a new computer. I was assured by everyone that I could reuse my shop bought windows 10. However, although the new computer is working I get constant messages saying windows cannot be activated because it has been used, and telling me to buy a "legal" copy! The computer I sent back has been blanked. What do I do?

    :)

    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

    Unlocked Realtek HD Audio Drivers Windows 7 & 8 (With Dolby Digital Live and DTS Interactive)

    DTS supported natively by Windows 8/8.1 and it should work on windows 10 too just DDL require to unlock your driver .
