    My some settings issue was more of an annoyance than anything else. The ones greyed out were turned off and not anything that impacts your use. Mostly displaying tips etc, if I remember correctly. The ones affected should be listed in my first post in that thread.

    Shouldn't be but wait for @alphanumeric as he had some issues with Education having "some things are controlled by your organization" with Education (I never used it).

    Perhaps you can post a screenshot of slmgr /dlv (you can show all details or ShowKeyPlus (Press the button to hide your key first).
    I can only do that once I get the new PC which should be here by Thursday or Friday. I'll just make a new thread if there are any concerns regarding the activation key.

    Thanks for the help. I should just create a new thread if there are other concerns.


    I'll consider this thread as solved.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I believe that all "MAK" are Retail.
    All "MAK" have to go by the same EULA.

    Here is what Microsoft says.

    My Visual Studio Subscription (MSDN) MAK keys appear to be treated as Retail. They now get a Digital license. In the past though, with earlier builds or Windows 10, they didn't. They showed as Activated with a product Code. I had to enter the key every time to activate. My MSDN MAK keys aren't Volume License keys. Not like the actual Volume License Key a corporation uses via KMS. My understanding is that MAK keys are special keys given to MSDN subscribers for Editions of Windows that would normally only ever be VL KMS activated. Enterprise for example. It's so you can test without using up one of your KMS licenses. Or for people like me that have no way to setup a KMS server, and or have no interest in setting it up just for use on one or two PC's. Confused? I am, lol.

    Just quickly stopping by here to confirm that I do have a retail key. I have finally got the new PC and installed W10 on it. Currently downloading 3 GB of updates.

    There are also no issues in activating it, just as if it's a regular one.
