  1. Windows 10 Reactivation Tip


    Hi - I recently experienced a hardware failure on my machine and needed to replace the motherboard. Windows 10 coped with having its existential basis undermined very smoothly I must say, and all was well. However, when I turned the machine on later, there was a message onscreen telling me that Windows was not activated. I went through the various troubleshooters but no joy. Finally I phoned Microsoft Customer Support and they walked me through the process using a command which I hope at least some of you might find handy. This tip only works if you upgraded from Windows 7 (or 8 I guess) AND still have the product key for that version to hand. Bring up the Run box (Winkey + R) and enter
    slui 3
    You must then enter the key for the version of Windows from which you upgraded to 10.
    Not exactly an epiphany but hopefully a useful tip *Smile

    :)

    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
