  1. Reactivate Windows 10?


    Hi all - a question.... I have a friend whose old HP 630 laptop has died - mobo failure. He's buying a cheap replacement mobo from Ebay, but as the machine was originally a Win7 machine upgraded to Win10, it does not have an embedded Windows 8/10 license key. There also doesn't seem to be a Windows 7 license key on the bottom of the case anywhere. I am guessing that Win10 would deactivate as it would detect the motherboard change...? It is a different motherboard, yes, but it is the EXACT same motherboard model.....would that make a difference...? Would there be any way to reactivate Win10 on it without purchasing a copy of Win10? Thanks! Reactivate Windows 10? :)

    :)

    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
