Is there any help out there for a Windows 8.1 home edition bought when upgrade to windows 10 was free, installed on the CP? Did BitLocker have a drive to manage or enable it when I had Windows 8.1? I really need help. Can I just go back to Windows 8.1, if I should, even? I'm very CP illiterate and mess around too much on my new PC that I purchased right from a Microsoft store 4 yrs ago.

Please help me someone. I can't take it anywhere cause I'm disabled and forced to figure everything out for myself. Who has time? I truly appreciate any form of advice concerning my PC. It's my bestfriend..haha.

Hello Eiliene, and welcome to Eight Forums. :)

I'm not sure what your asking.

If you're trying to determine if a drive has been encrypted by BitLocker, then you can use the method in the tutorial below to see of "Protection Status" reports as "Protection Off" or "Protection On".
