    Can we pin an explanation of activation to the Windows 10 and Windows 10 Insider forums main pages?

    An excellent article explaining Windows 10 activation and scenarios is at

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/activation-in-windows-10

    This article answers almost all the very frequent activation questions and problems posting in the Community | Windows 10 and Windows 10 Insider forums. Please pin it to those forums so we can refer to it when answering these questions.

    I wouldn't worry about it, as long as it's activated you are golden
