  1. Reactivating windows 10


    Hi, I have a Gateway PC that was upgraded to windows 10 during the free upgrade. Unfortunately, the system was taken apart by the Best Buy geek squad without prior consent. When that occurred, I no longer could start onto windows 10.

    I tried running the gateway restore DVD (which goes to windows 7), but, when I then tried to get back to windows 10, it asked for a serial number. I should be able to run windows 10 without a code.

    I ran the installer when it said press any key to use a DVD to boot from, then I said I didn’t have a code. When I got to windows 10, it says I need to activate it. How do I activate it?

    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
