    Windows 8.1 Pro Update 1

    Personalize


    Hello,

    New to Windows 8, just installed it today & have made it genuine with use of a patch.
    Very confused as when you go into Settings/Change PC Settings/Personalize the screen is greyed out & cannot use any of the screen.
    Anyone know how to make it available for use?

    I believe that Windows 8 RTM needs to be activated in order use most of the Personalize options.

    I don't believe we are allowed to talk about illegal software on this forum. There are some other forums such as MDL that will probably be more willing and able to help you.
