Windows Settings Activation Message

If your Windows isn't activated, a similar Activate Windows notification appears all the time in Windows Settings. You'll see the same notification whether you're using Windows 11 or Windows 10. You'll be taken to the Windows activation panel in Windows Settings after tapping the appropriate link.

There are no personalization options available.
You won't be able to modify any Personalization settings unless you activate Windows 10 or 11. To put it another way, you won't be able to alter your wallpaper, theme, title color, Start Menu color, transparency, or anything else. There is a problem with it.

Notifications to activate Windows on a regular basis
It's arguably the most vexing aspect about not having a fully functional copy of Windows. At regular intervals, you may receive a slew of messages urging you to activate your Windows installation with a valid product key.
