  1. Windows 10 Reactivation


    My Dell Inspiron had Windows 7 Pro installed when I took the free Windows 10 upgrade pushed through by Windows a few years ago. I recently was forced to create a Recovery USB from the unit after I upgraded to the 1909 Version. Upon reloading the PC with the Recovery Drive, I cannot Activate Windows now. Due to the free upgrade, I never had a Windows 10 Product Key and assumed the Windows 10 was tied to the unit's motherboard. That being said, I just attempted to enter the Windows 7 Pro Product Key I do have and I got an error saying it did not recognize that key. Any thoughts as to how I can reactivate my Windows 10 Pro?

    :)

    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
