This was very frustrating for me after upgrading to Windows 10. I know most of my posts are server related, but I hope this helps some of you.
Problem: When you try to change the product key of Windows 10 the box just freezes. There’s nowhere to enter your product key.
- Hit the Windows Key and type in UAC to open up the User Access Control Center
- If you’re like me, you dropped this down to less notifications because you believe in your ability to not be dumb and get vulnerabilities. You need to bring it back up to the bold dash where it used to be. Not the top one! That one won’t recognize your administrator account as an administrator for some reason. Screenshot of this below:
- Hit the windows key and type “Change Product Key” and choose to change your product key or Activate Windows. You should then be prompted to enter your product key.
- Enter your product key and that should be it!
I hope this helps you guys out there. I was ripping my hair out (I feel like I say that every time I post here) working on this.
