Getting a Window 10 Product key
I have recently upgraded my Win 7 ultimate version to Win 10 Pro version through Microsoft website. This was on the basis of an offer I received over my phone. The change over went on smoothly and the OS was installed properly. I am now using the operating system on on a computer where it was downloaded and installed. I am also able to get the win 10 Pro insider upgrades on that computer. I am now looking for a product key that will allow me to use the system for long term. How can I find the product key so that I can get it recorded and keep it safe for future use?
Windows 10 ISO downloads over torrents?
I'm setting up another machine, a laptop replacement for a relative. So I'm downloading Windows 10 for the Nth time now to reinstall Windows fresh from what it came with (keeping the key). Anyway, the current ISO size seems to be 4.9 GB, the connection to Microsoft's servers allow me to download at 60kB/s (well under what my internet connection can do, surely), and Microsoft WIndows' download page told me the link would be active for 24 hours. The expected time to finish the download at these rates is 24 hours, assuming nothing happens to this connection. Certainly this is causing me a strange bit anxiety xD Not to mention the annoyance of leaving a machine on just to complete a download. Now I'm not one to complain about the issues of download speeds, because I'm sure talking about hardware costs is annoying. But instead, I wonder why Microsoft Windows can't just distribute the ISO over torrenting? They attempted P2P sharing with Windows Update, why not the same with the ISOs? Less hassle for everyone. I'm really used to relegating ISO downloads to torrenting because I tend to run dual-boot with some sort of Linux distro on most of my own machines. Every distro I've used, I think, distributes its ISOs over torrents. I wonder if there's some strange reason why Windows can't do the same.
Would you prefer that the Windows be more consisent.I would
We all know that Windows 10 as an operating system is very inconsistent. For example, Windows 10 has 2 settings menus which mostly have the exact same things just duplicated. Also, if you scan all the dropdown menus in Windows 10, there are about four types, one of them being a fluent design type context menu-one that Microsoft should stick to, and the others literally being ripped out of Windows Vista and 7 and glued to Windows 10. In fact, one of the default apps in Windows 10, WordPad, as I've heard, are literally pulled out of Windows operating systems that are 20 years old! Hence I urge you all to voice out your opinions on this inconsistent Windows were Dark Mode is like half-baked pie. Share your experiences with the inconsistency. I hope it gets to Microsoft. Thank you!
Why Goes Windows 10 block Google Search Engine?
I just want to complain about why I have to reset my access to Google Search Engine every time Windows 10 does an update. I DO NOT like the other search engines - and I have tried them. I think it's really tacky of Microsoft to be so petty about making it hard to use products or services from other companies - even if the solution is BETTER for the customer's needs. I'm stuck with Windows for the next couple of years, but my next laptop will probably NOT be a PC.

updating to Windows 2004 deletes Windows update history
I like to know one thing or two. I was offered Windows 10 2004 on my device. I updated it to 2004 but when I check the Windows update history under settings, it is empty except for the feature update one. What happened to the drivers and the Defender definition updates? They are not listed there anymore. Is that meant to be like that? Can someone tell me?
Update failures for Window 10
Hi everyone Is anyone experiencing updates failures for 'cumulative updates for Windows 10 version 2004 for x64-based systems #KB4550936. This has failed four times or perhaps even five times. I have gone through the usual routes of trying troubleshooter - unsuccessful. When I have clicked on the support thread, I am taken to a landing page which indicates 'sorry page not found'. I have to think that this will be fixed. I would just like to understand what has failed and why. I am a curious person. Views anyone?
