  1. Reactivating windows 10 home


    I have recently changed a lot of the hardware in my computer and when it came to reactivating windows 10 it said to pick my device, I did and then it said that there was an error. I followed all the steps on the Microsoft website and still, it won't work. Please if anyone knows a solution let me know. Thanks.

    :)

    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
