How to switch from Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Professional without reinstallation

Upgrade your version of Windows without having to completely reinstall your PC's operating system. Switching from a version of Windows 10 Home to a version of Windows 10 Pro isn't as complicated as you might think. If you imagined a complete system reinstallation to switch from one version to another, you were wrong. Microsoft has done it right. Upgrading a Windows 10 Home to a Windows 10 Professional is done by simply changing the product key saved in the system settings. You will therefore only have to buy a Windows 10 Professional product key that you will enter in place of the one already present on your machine. Even better, if you already have a Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, or Windows 8 / 8.1 Pro product key, for example from a machine that you no longer use, you can normally use it to upgrade your Windows 10 Home to Windows 10 Professional. Windows can be unpredictable at times, so be sure to make a full backup of the data stored on your computer before st

How to share your screen in Facebook Messenger on iOS or Android



Facebook recently introduced a new feature in its Messenger app on iOS and Android. Users can now share their device screen with loved ones during a call.

After first offering it on desktop, Facebook began rolling out a screen sharing feature on the mobile version of its Messenger application a few days ago. The feature, available on both iOS and Android, allows users to share content displayed on their device's screen during a video call with loved ones.


Very convenient, screen sharing can be used for many reasons: to help your loved ones use their device by guiding them, to give a presentation during a meeting, to go shopping online with others, and much more. Here's how to use it.

 

1. Start a video call

Open Messenger on your device, start a conversation and start a video call with one or more loved ones.


Once the call screen is displayed, drag the bottom bar to the top of the screen.


2. Share your screen

Once the lower pane is deployed, press the Share your screen button. A Start Recording or Broadcasting with Messenger window appears.


Tap Start to initiate sharing your screen in the conversation.


3. Turn off screen sharing

You can now go about your business during the video call by quitting Messenger and browsing your smartphone in another app.


All content and operations performed from your smartphone screen are now visible to all video call participants.


To end video sharing, open Messenger again to access the video chat, and tap the Stop sharing button.

How to use Meet Now, Skype video calling service for free?

Skype has just integrated a solution to create or join video meetings on the fly with or without registration. Here's how to use it. With the confinement imposed on all by the Covid-19, downloads of messaging applications to initiate video calls have exploded. And if in the mid-2000s, Skype was the benchmark in terms of videoconferencing solution, the application acquired by Microsoft in 2011 has lost its splendor and has been overtaken by new, more aggressive players offering an interface and more modern features that have won over the general public. To return to the front of the stage, the application has multiplied the updates bringing new features such as the ability to blur the background during a video call, or to translate on the fly conversations held in other languages. But in an attempt to counter Zoom, whose use has exploded in recent weeks, Skype has launched Meet Now, a feature to launch a video meeting on the fly, accessible both from the application and from a web b
