    Windows 10 activation


    Hi,
    I purchased/installed windows 10 pro from ebay (CoA). I enter the PK and windows does get activated.
    <This PC><properties> displays: "Windows is activated" . I'm used to seeing a genuine stamp on the left
    side of the screen, it's not there.
    Has windows dropped this or do I need to do something?
    Thanks,
    Keith

    That's normal for Windows 10. Also look in Settings > Update & security > Activation, it will say activated with a Product key or activated with a digital license.

    I can't explain that, I have no idea why they don't match?
    Did you actually get a COA sticker with the key on it? Or just a photo shot of it?
    Did you clean install, or do a change product key to an already installed Windows 10?
