    Windows 10 Activation Error - New Hardware


    Hello


    I recently made a hardware change, upon reinstalling Windows 10 I tried activating through the digital license steps show in your guides. The previous Windows 10 was from a Windows 7 -> Windows 10 upgrade.


    My previous machine said "Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft Account." I have logged into the new windows 10 installation with this Microsoft account but the digital license has not transferred.


    I tried calling support after going through the troubleshooter that didn't work, but my call was put on hold and then dropped, hope someone can assist me in activating Windows 10 on my new installation.


    Thank you.

    :)

    Windows 10 will not activate Error code 0x803F7001

    Possibly there can be the problem with Microsoft activation Server, so your Windows 10 is not activated. In this scenario, you need to wait and verify if it is the issue from Microsoft’s side. But if you are getting error code 0x803f7001, you can also try these steps:

    1. Open Settings app. Then go to Update and security > Activation screen > Change product.
    2. Type your Windows edition product key and click Next.
    3. You’ll get We couldn’t activate Windows error message.
    4. Retry steps 1-3 then type your 25-characters unique product key.
    5. Wait for the process to complete, Windows 10 is activated.
    Hope something helps this problem

    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
