  • Looks like you've installed the Core Edition and not the Pro. Home Editions of Windows never had this functionality.

  • Hi Andre,

    Thanks for your response. :)

    In this case, I have to go for Professional version. I need one more clarification.

    I purchased and activated MS Office 2010 in this Windows 8 Home Edition. While purchasing Dell Inspiron 15R laptop, I got McAFee Antivirus with one year validity and this is also got activated currently. If I replace my existing OS (Win 8 Home) to Windows 7 / 8 Professional, Can I reuse the product keys of these two software with my new (win 7/8 pro) OS? Will it work?


    Thanks and Regards, Kasi Saravanan N
