    Transfer of Key


    Good day.


    Quick question.


    I will be getting a new Motherboard / Cpu / RAM / Graphics card for a PC upgrade soon. Can I transfer my current Windows key over to that machine? Current PC will become spare parts


    Current windows 10 is Windows 10 Pro, but I believe this is an OEM version?

    :)

    Is the free upgarde transferable? I think not.


    Hi Kari,
    Can you confirm that the computer at step 5 (I numbered your list *Wink ) had never had an activated Insider build (especially not 10240)?

    I'm wondering if it was possible that the second machine activated because the activation servers recognised the hardware from an earlier activation, and not because of the method you used to transfer?

  3. Transfer of product key

    Hello.

    Whoever told you that you need to "deactivate" is wrong. Go here for actual steps on transfering the product key over:

    Simply put, you just need to transfer the license over. you do not need to deactivate first.

    For more info, i suggest calling MS support about activation issues.

    Taskbar bug: switching to another window -will not appear at the front


    Follow either of these steps to fix the issue with the Active window hiding behind.

    Method 1:
    I suggest you to disable window by hovering over it with the mouse and check if it helps. To do so I suggest you to try the below given steps and check if it helps:

    1. Press Windows key + X key and click on Control Panel.
    2. Select or click Ease of Access.
    3. Click or tap onEase of Access Centre.
    4. Click on Make the Mouse Easier to Use was uncheck Activate Window by hovering over it with the mouse.
    5. Check if issue is resolved.
    Method 2:
    I would suggest you to completely uninstall the touchpad driver and reinstall it. Kindly follow the below given steps.

    1. Press “Windows key + X” and click on “Device Manager”.
    2. In the list of devices, you should see the touchpad drivers.
    3. Right click on the device and then select "Uninstall".
    4. In the uninstall dialog, make sure you select the option to delete the driver package from the system. This causes the driver package installed earlier to be deleted.
    5. In the Action menu of Device manager, select “Scan for Hardware changes” option. This will cause the device driver to be reinstalled. Once the driver is installed, close all windows and restart the computer.
