  1. Windows 10 Education to Home


    I have 2 laptops, which both of them came with windows 10 home edition already installed.


    I tried using education version of windows 10 (it is free for college students) for both of the laptops. I registered the education version product key on my first laptop, and then used the same key on second laptop. My first laptop then showed "activate windows" watermark, even though it started with a home edition.


    Then, I tried to use that key back on my first computer, and it did not work. I tried going back to home edition for my second computer, but there was no function like "unused educational product key". Even resetting the laptop wont go back to manufacturer's windows, and still uses my registered education version key.


    In order to "unregister" my educational key, I just removed windows from my second laptop. However, when I try to use that key on my first laptop, it still shows that the key is in use, and "activate windows" watermark still remains.



    In short, I am supposed to have 3 windows 10's (two came with laptops, and one education), but after messing up with education version stuff, I ended up with none. I might be able to get education version on my second laptop by reinstalling windows on it, but I do not want windows on that machine anymore.


    So my questions are:

    1. Is there any way to go back to manufacturer's windows 10 home edition, after registering education product key on that machine?

    2. How can I use educational key on my first laptop again? it says key is still in use.

    :)

    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

    Windows Education Issue

    Are you have Windows 10 Education installed?

    To find out if you have the right edition installed:

    Click Start > Settings > Update & security > Activation > Edition.

    If you don't have the right edition installed, you will need to download and install it.

    Step 1:

    Download Windows 10 Education ISO files

    If you attend a college or university, your institution might provide you with the Education edition of Windows 10. If you are only provided with a license (product key), you can download the .ISO file from the Microsoft Download Academic Products website.

    Go to the following link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/vlacademicISO
