I could not have gotten to this point without you. I did what you advised. Only one was left. I selected NEXT after. It now says "Getting Files Ready For Installation"

Remember my posting about Creating A Local Account. Pay attention to the bottom left of the page when offered. Everything else is basically selecting configuration choices. I generally turn all off, including Cortana. Any of those can be selected later.

OK. Will you be leaving me now? Surely, you require some rest. I cannot tell you how grateful I am for your time and help.

No, I'm a bit of a night owl. I'll hang in longer if you want to continue. You may really need some rest though considering what time it is in the Caribbean.

It is a good thing that I am not scheduled to work today (Friday). I will be able to catch up on some well-needed sleep.

 

By the way, is there a method by which persons can make pecuniary contributions? Can I make one specifically to you? I know you do not require a service charge of any kind. I am just profoundly moved by the amount of time you have spent helping me. And I am especially moved by the fact that you were prepared to do so without anything to gain. Your time and mental energy are of enormous value. I insist that you allow me please to tangibly show you my thanks.

Thank you. A most kind & gracious offer but totally not permitted nor would I accept if it were. I don't nor anyone else here is seeking financial gain. Your appreciation & genuine thanks is payment enough. Thank you again.

Let's check & be sure that your install is activated.

 

To check activation status in Windows 10, select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & security > Activation.

 

Hopefully you'll see "Windows is Activated"

Very good. You learned a bit, saved some cash & earned a good nights rest. If you have any questions [everyone does] start a new thread. Always someone here ready to assist.

Hope to see you around. Take care indomitable! Good night.
