A lot of people are having issues activating windows 10

1. Windows 10 Professional W269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX
2. Windows 10 Professional N MH37W-N47XK-V7XM9-C7227-GCQG9
3. Windows 10 Education NW6C2-QMPVW-D7KKK-3GKT6-VCFB2
4. Windows 10 Education N 2WH4N-8QGBV-H22JP-CT43Q-MDWWJ
5. Windows 10 Enterprise NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43
6. Windows 10 Enterprise N DPH2V-TTNVB-4X9Q3-TJR4H-KHJW4
7. Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB WNMTR-4C88C-JK8YV-HQ7T2-76DF9
8. Windows 10 Enterprise 2015 LTSB N 2F77B-TNFGY-69QQF-B8YKP-D69TJ

Example for Windows 10 Pro – CMD (Admin)
Enter each line and press enter

slmgr/ipk W269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX

For others just download Windows 10 iso from microsoft. Check the os on your system first e.g. single language and download the single language edition iso on Microsoft website. Mount/extract the iso and install from there. It will be pre activated.

Good luck

How backward compatible is the new OS? I hope it won't alter any of my already installed programs & files?

Last and final question smiley

Am getting some disappointing news from tech sites about the inability to disable windows update for windows 10 home users, knowing the data access situation in the country do you have an idea if updates take place only when connected to an Ethernet data source? Don't want to have all my small data zapped while tethering from my android device coz of an update I might not need.

yeah that set your WiFi as metered connection so it will know its using counted data. you know your phones and laptops know WiFi is unlimited internet in developed countries. here it isn't, its all capped. just set it as metered connection and you're good to go.

How to set your connection as metered:
To start, click on the Wi-Fi connection in the taskbar on the far right side and select Network settings at the bottom of the panel that pops up. This will open the Settings app. Alternatively, you can just open the Settings app and click Network & Internet > Wi-Fi .
The Settings app lets you set a Wi-Fi connection as metered.

At the bottom of the Wi-Fi screen select Advanced options . This opens the advanced settings for the Wi-Fi access point you’re currently connected to. Next, scroll down to Metered connection and turn the slider to On under Set as metered connection .

That’s it. You’re done!

The next time Windows 10 has an update ready, you’ll be notified that an update is available for download. You can either grab it then or wait until you’re on a non-metered connection.

Download single language windows 10 from Microsoft website. Use the key that came with your laptop. (Under the laptop). If your system is the modern ones with no key in sight just download and install. It will automatically activate when collected online

Upgrading pirated windows will still make your windows pirated.

Restore your os that came with your laptop. Use that one to upgrade. Best option.

Calm down my brother. Check for updates and download a available updates to solve sleep and screen resolution issues.

You can bring back the Hibernate button, I will give you the details on this when am on pc tonight.

The brightness settings is still there, don't be lazy sir.

I like the music and video apps and I agree it consumes battery a little but not drain.

In-addition to my earlier post on how to activate the Contana with simple server, you can download windows 10 update upon installation when you uncheck the give ,me updates for other microsoft products when i update (Windows Update > Advanced Options > uncheck "Give me updates for other Microsoft products when I update Windows). And run cmd as admin with netsh winhttp set proxy proxy-server=localhost port8080

put local host in numbers.
