    How do I have 2 computers activated with 1 windows home product key?

    It's called leeway been like this for years but with Windows 10 it is getting tighter.

  3. My Laptop shows other Wi-Fi but doesn't show my own Wi-Fi.

    Maybe your router is setup to not broadcast its SSID. This can be chosen for tighter security, but it means anyone wanting to connect has to manually type in the SSID and password, etc.

  5. Heh. I needed to use the two factor authentication to INSTALL Windows 10. Remember the nag screen where it asked you to get a super secret code via one of a few sources like your phone text message, an e-mail account, or other things that your MS account knows about? That is the two-factor authentication at work. I got the code off of my phone and then things continued on. Get used to it and not just on MS stuff as my Google account, Steam account, and battle.net all use it.

    I installed Windows 10 without any such thing, straight to the local account.

  7. Another way to get locked out when this new feature is off line or as every Microsoft service goes on the fritz eventually
    When a password on a local computer is not enough :/
    I doubt Microsoft can force people into 2 step sign in's or simply installing something
    So we are to believe cell services are secure via text messaging *Confused
