  1. Why is reactivation so hard and yet Microsoft does not seem to have a clue?


    So I went on line and looked the info up to upgrade my hardware to Windows 11 Pro Compatible, machine is attached to my account and move to new hardware and the license does not activate. Yes I rant the commands to see if it was a retail license and yes it came back it was. I had to buy this copy because my OEM blew up so I knew it was retail.I got a call at midnight my time, and was told by the agent I needed to wipe my drive and just reinstall and that my copy would activate after that. Well it did not, now I am hoping I have not been cheated out of my license now. Microsoft says you nee

  2. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:
    Clear browsing data option of Microsoft Edge and check if you face the issue. To do so perform the steps below.

    1. Click on the More actions icon next to the feedback icon present on top right corner of the Project Spartan homepage.
    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    1. Go to Settings.
    2. Choose Accounts and then select Family and other users.
    3. Select add someone else on this PC.
    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
    5. Click on Finish.
    6. Sign out from the current Account and Log into the new account.
    Step 3:
    It could also happen because of network issue. I suggest you to try with different network connection and check if it helps.

    Reactivation Failed

    I have just recently replaced my motherboard/processor and I reformatted my windows hard drive. I gone through the hardware changes steps, I chose the old machine listed on my account and clicked on ACTIVATE.

    It now tells me that:

    "Unable to activate Windows

    We can't reactivate Windows on this device. Try again later."

    What am I missing here?

    Why is reactivation so hard and yet Microsoft does not seem to have a clue?

    Good surround sound headset

    I know you say you're not that guy, but stepping into the $250+ range really brings a change in build quality that might have you never having to buy another set. Otherwise, getting 6 speakers with decent sound in a headset is hard, and that's what you are asking for, and I have no suggestions, but just a bump up the list. *Stick Out Tongue Why is reactivation so hard and yet Microsoft does not seem to have a clue? :p
