    Enabling "Windows activation" option in the CACS


    I activated Windows 8.1 Update Enterprise 64-bit.

    I noticed, however, that, in the "Change Action Center settings" window, the "Windows Activation" option is disabled and picked. How come? How do I enable and unpick it?

    Hello Balubeto,

    You don't. This is hard coded to alert you if your Windows should be detected as not being activated.

    This is something that you should never see anyways. If you do, then you would certainly want to know so that you could get Windows activated again.

    It's check-marked and greyed out because that process is done and you won't receive any more messages about it.
    If you need to make changes to 'Windows Activation' in the future, you would need to go to PC Settings and choose, for example, 'Change Product Key'.
