    Hi David - Possibly a temporary glitch (or something at my end) but the first link doesn't open for me. The other 2 links are fine - thank you.

    Hope this helps...

    If you see the pop-up asking if you will allow etc, just click Allow.

    An alternative is to use this Windows Blog :
    https://blogs.windows.com/windowsexp...-14371-for-pc/

    and scroll down to the link that says :

    Hi David, using Firefox 47.0 all I get is a new tab with about:blank in the address bar, even if I turn off FF's popup blocker and uBlock.

    When I opened the link in IE (which I rarely use), I get a message that the web page cannot be displayed.

    Do you have Silverlight installed (which I notice is available in Windows Update for the 11th time)?

    No Silverlight.
    Default browser : IE11

    To anyone else who cannot open the first link, please use the Windows Blog I posted on post #3.

    To those whos are using Insider Preview , just simply go to Start > Feedback Hub > left side, Reactivating Windows 10 after a hardware change.


    To those who are using Win 10 RTM, go to Start > Insider hub > right side, Announcing Windows 10 Insider preview build 14372 for PC and Mobile > left side, Reactivating Windows 10 after a hardware change.

    Also, you can open the Windows Blog link and scroll to " Go to Feedback Hub for additional details about this feature ".

    Sorry about that. I have no idea why my first link does not work for everybody.

    The reason it doesn't work is it relies on the host machine running an Insider Preview version of Windows.

    I've clicked on many links from the Insider team on Twitter only for it to fall flat on its face because I was using an Android phone

    I am posting in my main computer running Windows 10 RTM 10586.420 for all forums participations.
    And the link works for me.

    I don't care where my link actually goes to.

    All that I know is ..................

    I used my Win 10 RTM to post the link and I used the same machine to open the link without issue.

    If others have problem doing the same, then I posted an alternative, post #6.
    If someone has a better way, please post it. It would be great.

    If you don't care where the link goes to should you be posting it on a public forum?

    1, I gave an alternative for others who may have problem opening the link.

    2. All you did is to give half answer.
    If you have a way to replace my first link, why didn't you post it ?
    You are more than welcome to give members a better way.

    You're logged into W10 with the same MS login that you use for your Insider subscription, David?

    Yes. I use the same MSA to logon to both my RTM and Insider computers.

    In light of your question, I decided to find out what if I used a local account to sign in instead of a MSA for my RTM laptop.

    I did so, and I am still able to open the link in question.
