    Please open a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) and run:
    slmgr /dlv

    There will not be any uniquely identifying info in the result, please post the entire result here without blanking anything out and we can help further.

    I suspect you probably have an erroneous Windows 10 Home product key installed and it needs to be changed to:
    YTMG3-N6DKC-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7

    This is the correct default Home key: YTMG3-N6DKC-DKB77-7M9GH-8HVX7

    Use the Settings -> Activation->change product key link to install it.

    @Superfly provided the correct product key. My mistake - I wasn't at home to look at mine :-). Windows 10 Creator's Update has had issues with the GUI Activation Screen under Settings - Updates & Security - sometimes it won't activate Windows. Now that you have the proper product key installed, open the Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) and run:
    slmgr /ato

    That forces the online automatic activation. If you are already activated, it won't do any harm, it will just come back with a message that your Windows 10 is activated.
