Well, is Windows activated on your PC ? Setting will show you.

Do you sign on with a MS account?

I meant signing in to your PC when you boot or have you turned that off and are using a local account.

Either way settings - update and security - activation will tell you.

This is a PC in home therefore there is no sign in activity when booting.

Just type the word activation into the search box. You will get a dialog box that tells you if the PC is activated.


For a Windows 10 machine to be activated it has to have a legal licence registered with Microsoft.
There are several ways of doing this.


I believe a non-activated Windows 10 machine will run for a few weeks then pop up notifications for a while and then will stop working.
