Q: Is there is a post and an answer on how to remove the banner “Need to renew Microsoft Windows 10 License” that appears on the start-up for Windows 10?

A: At present, there is neither a post nor an answer that deals with that question, Ellis. Well, there wasn’t when I started writing this edition, but if you’re reading it, then obviously, that has changed, and there are now both a post and an answer. Funny how it just seems to work out that way.

Let me start by saying that I’ve never seen or even heard of the particular message that you cited. That’s not unusual — I can’t possibly know every single message that Windows chooses to pop up on you.
