    How to set KMS Server to default

    I changed KMS server in my Windows 8.1 PC using this command:

    [CODE][slmgr /skms]

    I was doing some experiment. Then I realize it is not MAK. It's just Pro Retail. Now I don't know how to set back to default KMS. And I'm getting this error all the time: please check attached screenshot.

    MAK Keys don't use a private server, either - they use the MS servers same as Retail.

    try using the command SLUI 3 and re-enter your Key - with luck it will reset everything in the process.

    Why are you trying to use a KMS license in the first place?
