Windows 10: like windows 8.1 is linked to your hardware and as such is coded into windows itself.

There is no easy way to find your code. A reinstall, as long as there are no major hardware change will activate automatically.

If you head to the Microsoft windows 10 media creator download you can download an ISO or USB windows install media for recovery or reinstall.

 

Windows checks with MS servers during activation to see if your PC is a known windows 10 device and activates if all is correct.

There are software apps out there that claim to recover your product code but I'm unsure if they work with Windows 10 yet

cheers i have the usb version put by safely for the future ,although the cpu is slow its an octo version and 16gb of memory

should be fine for a while yet so hopefully no major changes are in mind

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

Nice adware huh. Im moving away from windows completely. Currently trying ubuntu and debian.   Only thing holding me back is photoshop not working 100% on wine (kinda windows software emulator for l

Yeah ive used it a few times but since i use it for work i cant afford the learning curve plus as far as getting something print ready i can do it very easy on PS but gimp i dunno. Could end up going

I really only use my PC for videos and photos which I take myself, or youtube (a lot) and Word. Sorted the word problem out, you have to save in to One drive/documents, at least Wife can get back to

my installation went fine this morning.....all OK until I went to edit some word docs. Wouldn't let me save them as I need Admin permission. I am admin (says so on the pc) but still not working. More of a problem is that docs are now saved as read only even though I have ticked the boxes and the properties shows them as not read only.

 

Even worse problems with video playback, inconsistent to put it mildly! Media player says they are in a not supported format...they are, some in different formats, but all played ok before "upgrade". I have one saved in MOV format which plays sometimes (?) most of them in AVC or MP4, all supported by windows media according to the list.

 

I suspect it is to do with the fresh installation required after win 10 of my AMD software.

 

My brain is now hurting so I will give it a rest for tonight,

 

just tried youtube and only getting sound !

Having activated a microsoft account whilst messing about with Cortana I now have to sign on to it each time I power on. Is there any way of stopping this as SWMBO is getting more than a little hacked off

I believe there is a years grace to upgrade mate ? Best wait until the bugs etc seem to be ironed out methinks.

I think you can revert to a local account ,i quite like the microsoft one it means you can sync other microsoft stuff to look the same ,a bit like google and android stuff

 

I did though do a fair bit of denying so the snooping should be less in the back ground ,in the guts of most software you either have a default of snoop or a way of denying it ,rather than helping you in your 'experience' its just them getting knowledge for getting paid adverts or flogging your data down the line ,hard to avoid nowadays

I really only use my PC for videos and photos which I take myself, or youtube (a lot) and Word. Sorted the word problem out, you have to save in to One drive/documents, at least Wife can get back to her accounts etc, still can't edit and save the original word docs though.

 

YouTube playing up still mostly only getting sound if anything, not sure this is MS problem though.

 

PC now asks if I want to allow my Sony playmemories to "make changes" to my PC...bloody annoying as it has worked faultlessly for years through several updates.

 

I will give it a week or so and then go back to Win7, only problem there is that I will have to reinstall quite a lot of stuff, and may end up worse off.

 

 

 

Tried loading some new pics and videos via my sony playmemories and they all play back seamlessly! and some of the old stuff MP4 will play on Quicktime with a struggle. Maybe the Windows media player will sort itself out soon, as I used it to play all my stuff.
