Windows 10: W10 advises it is in Test Mode ? Solved

    W10 advises it is in Test Mode ?


    I upgraded my PC from W7 to W10
    I notice that in bottom tight (above sys tray) it states 'Text mode Windows 10 Pro Build 10586'
    Why am I in test mode, anything I should do to correct this ? or do I just ignore it.

    1st check to make sure your Windows is activated. Type Activation in search and press enter...
    If it is activated then type this in a command prompt admin.
    bcdedit /set TESTSIGNING OFF

    See if it now goes away.

    # was showing activated
    # applied cmd string
    # rebooted

    now seems cleared - thanks
    What would have caused that ?

    You may have had test mode turned on (normally to let unsigned drivers run). Other than that I don't really know.

    OK ... I did allow unsigned drivers when original upgrade failed. That makes sense.
