8. Activation Troubleshooter
Windows 10 includes the ability to tie your Windows 10 license to your Microsoft Account, rather than to your PC’s hardware. If Windows 10 proves troublesome after you upgrade your PC, go to Settings > Update & Security, add your Microsoft account (if it isn’t linked already), and then click Troubleshoot at the bottom of the screen.
You’ll also find a new Start fresh with a clean
Windows install option alongside Windows 10’s Refresh and Reset tools, which goes even further than the other options by blasting away any bloatware preinstalled by your device manufacturer. You’ll be prompted to download a tool from Microsoft’s website in order to start the procedure, though.
