How to Activate Windows 10 After Hardware Change

Welcome to the wtg guide for How to Activate Windows 10 After Hardware Change. On Windows 10, when you make a significant change, such as replacing the motherboard, hard drive, or processor, the system may fail to recognize the computer. As a result, the installation will become deactivated (with error 0xC004F211).

In older versions, if Windows lost its activation because of a hardware change, you needed to go through the tedious process of contacting Microsoft support to reactivate, which is not an ideal solution, and not many users were aware of the option.

However, the activation process has changed since the original release of Windows 10, and you can now link your device digital license to your Microsoft account, which you can then use to reactivate the installation using the Activation Troubleshooter in the same or clean installation of the OS.

In this Windows 10 guide, we’ll walk you through the steps to properly use the Activation Troubleshooter to reactivate your device.

  • How to prepare reactivation before hardware change on Windows 10
  • How to reactivate installation after hardware change on Windows 10

How to Prepare Reactivation Before Hardware Change on Windows 10

To ensure that you can reactivate Windows 10 after a hardware change, use these steps:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Click on Update & Security.
  3. Click on Activation.
  4. If under the “Windows” section, the Activation reads: Windows is activated with a digital license, then under the “Add a Microsoft account” section, click the Add an account option.

    Quick note: You must be using an administrator account to complete the process. If under the “Windows” section, the Activation reads: Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account, then your device license is already linked to a Microsoft account, and you can skip these steps, and continue with the reactivation process below.
  5. Confirm your Microsoft account credentials.

  7. Confirm your account password.
  8. Confirm your local account password.

  9. Click the Next button.

Once you complete the steps, you should see the Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account message in the “Activation” page, indicating that the link was successfully processed. You can now continue with the hardware change process, and then use the instructions below to reactivate Windows 10.

  6. Confirm your Microsoft account credentials (if applicable).
  7. Click the Sign-in button. Quick note: If you’re reactivating an existing installation that already had the Microsoft account configured, then you won’t be prompted to sign in.
  8. Select the device that you’re trying to reactivate.

    Quick tip: If the device isn’t on the list, click the See other devices linked to your Microsoft account option, and select the device.
  9. Check the This is the device I’m using right now option.
  10. Click the Activate button.

After you complete the steps, Windows 10 will reactivate, and you can start using the device and all the features available with the OS.

If you’re not able to activate, you may need to acquire a new license to install and activate Windows 10 on the device. If this is the case, we recommend getting the latest Windows 10 Pro, which unlocks all the features available for the platform.

Microsoft’s bread and butter.

Windows is king of the OS castle and productivity apps. Windows 10 Pro is the most dynamic version of Windows yet, with Microsoft’s development focused on shipping new features and updates faster than any previous version of the OS.

If Your Device Does Not Appear on the List

In the case the device doesn’t appear in the “Reactivate Windows 10” list, there are a number of things that could be happening.

For instance, you may not be using the Microsoft account that is storing the digital license to activate the OS.

If you’re using the correct Microsoft account, you’ll need to find the reason. Here are some of the possible problems:

  • Windows 10 was never properly activated on the device.
  • The device isn’t using a genuine version of Windows 10. If this is the case, you’ll need to purchase a genuine copy of Windows 10.
  • You’re not running the edition that the digital license activates.
  • The device you’re trying to activate doesn’t match the type of device you’ve linked to your digital license.
  • You can only reactivate so many times. If you reach that (unspecified) limit, you won’t be able to activate Windows 10.
  • The computer is an organization managed device, in which case the reactivation tool is not available. (To resolve this issue, contact your system administrator.)

If, after using the Activation Troubleshooter, you can’t activate Windows 10, then the next step is to contact Microsoft customers support for assistance.

Since the initial release of Windows 10, Microsoft has been making a lot of improvements, including to the activation process. However, there are still scenarios where you may run into activation problems, and this is when the troubleshooter can make things easier to help users upgrade their computer’s hardware without hassle.

How to Capture Video on PC

How to Capture Video on PC

How to Capture Video on PC

Screenshots are easy to take in Windows 10. You can quickly snap your screen using the handy Print Screen button on your keyboard and fine-tune it via the Snip & Sketch tool. Capturing video of your screen is more difficult, but Microsoft makes it possible through the use of a built-in video capture tool called Game Bar.

This tool was designed to record games you play directly on your PC or those you stream from an Xbox One, but Game Bar can just as easily capture video of screen activity from your web browser, Microsoft Office applications, and many other programs. Your screen activity is then automatically saved as an MP4 video file.

The directions below cover screen recording on PCs with the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, which gave the Game Bar interface an upgrade. Earlier versions also allow for screen recording via the Game Bar, and the process is similar, but the on-screen tools will look slightly different. There are also a few system requirements for Game Bar. Here’s how it works.

Set Up Screen Recording

First make sure that Game Bar is enabled. Open Settings > Gaming > Game bar. Turn on the switch to “Record game clips, screenshots, and broadcast using Game Bar” if it’s not already on. From this screen you can also change any of the keyboard shortcuts associated with opening the Game Bar, taking a screenshot, and recording video.

Open the app or screen you wish to record. You can start a recording from most applications and windows, but there are exceptions. You can’t kick off a capture from the Windows desktop, File Explorer, or certain Windows apps such as Maps and Weather. Otherwise, the field is pretty wide open.

Record Your Screen

Press Win+G to open Game Bar. The Game Bar pane pops up with controls for capturing screenshots, recording video and audio, and broadcasting your screen activity. The pane also displays the name of your current app, file, or window as the source for the video capture.

Windows 10 Game Bar Recording

Click the camera icon to take a simple screenshot or hit the Start Recording button to capture your screen activity. Instead of going through the Game Bar pane, you can also just press Win+Alt+R to start your recording. Press it again to stop the capture.

The first time you choose to record screen activity from a specific application or window, Game Bar needs your permission. Click the checkbox to “Enable gaming features for this app to record gameplay.” Click the square Start Recording button again, and the video capture starts.

screen recording

You can now perform whatever screen actions you want to capture. The full Game Bar pane vanishes, replaced by a small floating bar in the upper-right corner of the screen through which you can control the recording.

To stop the recording, click the Recording button on the floating bar. A notification appears telling you that the game clip was recorded and showing you the location of the video file. Click the notification, and File Explorer opens to the specified location. Just double-click the video file to play it in its associated application.

save capture recordings

If you don’t like where video captures are saved by default, you can always change where they are saved by going to Settings > Gaming.

Recording in the Background

Have you ever been doing something on your computer and then suddenly wished you’d captured the moment? With the Windows 10 Game Bar, you can record the last 30 seconds of screen activity after you’ve already performed it.

game bar settings

To do this, you first need to grant permission for the computer to record your activities in the background. Open the Game Bar and click the Settings icon. Scroll down the Settings screen and check the box to “Record in the background while I’m playing a game.”

Now you will never miss the last 30 seconds again. Just click the Record last 30 sec button and a video will be generated. This number can be changed in Windows by going to Settings > Gaming.

Record 30 sec

Start a Live Broadcast

Instead of recording your screen activities, you have the ability to broadcast a live feed through your Xbox Live account. To begin, click the Start broadcasting button on the Game Bar. If you’re not already logged in, you will be prompted to sign into your Xbox Live account. Once your account is set up you can agree to the terms of service and begin recording.

start broadcasting

You can preview your feed in the small preview window. You can also tweak the options for your microphone and camera. When your broadcast is finished, just click the stop button to bring it to an end.

live broadcasting

View Captures

While all video and screenshots will be saved onto your computer, and will be fully viewable inside Windows 10, you can also view and work with all files directly inside the Game Bar. Click the command “Show all captures” located under the control panel to open a file window.

show captures

From the Captures window, you can play, rename, and delete each video capture. You can also see the date, size, and source application for each video. Close the Captures window when you’re done.

view captures

If there are any settings you need to tweak, you can view Game Bar settings by clicking the settings icon. Aditional Game Bar settings can be changed in Windows 10 by going to Settings > Gaming. Check out the settings under the categories for Game bar, Captures, Broadcasting, Game Mode, and Xbox Networking.

How to Enable Windows 10 Dark Mode

How to Enable Windows 10 Dark Mode

I personally do a considerable amount of night time work on the computer, and the Windows 10 dark mode does appear to lessen the strain on the eyes in the evening hours.

First things first…you’ll need to make sure you have the corresponding Windows 10 version.  The full capabilities of dark mode (which includes a dark theme for the file explorer) is available via Windows 10 version 1809.

Windows 10

Go to:

  1. Settings
  2. Update & Security

Check for latest updates.  Download, install, and restart your pc as needed.

After it is confirmed that version 1809 has been installed go to:

  1. Settings
  2. Personalization
  3. Colors

On the “Colors” section scroll down to the bottom where it says “Choose your defualt app mode”.

Click on the “Dark” radio button.

Dark mode should now be enabled.
