How to install Windows 10 Home Single Language on a laptop that's running Windows 10 Home?

Windows XP

I replaced my Dell laptop's HDD a few months back and I installed the recovery OS that Dell sent w/ the HDD. After booting into the desktop, a text saying that Windows isn't activated appeared. I ran the Windows activation troubleshooter and it says that it found a Windows 10 Home Single Language digital license for my laptop that is currently running Windows 10 Home, and that to activate using said license, I need to install Windows 10 Home Single Language. My question is, how does one exactly install Windows 10 Home SL on a computer running regular Windows 10 Home? I'm aware of the Windows Media Creation tool, but I wanted to consult here first before doing anything that can affect my laptop. Thanks in advance.

1.12.17 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986). IT Actually made a difference with a noticeable increase in speed.

Windows XP

I don't want to be overly optimistic , but my computer updated yesterday 1/12.17 with Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986). IT Actually made a difference with a noticeable increase in speed. The thing has been running poorly ever since the Win 10 Anniversary Update. I think I'll create a restore point so I can come back if it continues to run well.

Take a user off my computer without deleting their account.

Windows XP

We set up two laptops for our children using my details. This caused the computers to talk to each other and things were swapping over which was annoying. So we put each child on as a separate user on their own laptops - so there was myself and one child on each laptop. But for some reason my daughter can now log in to my son's laptop meaning that there are three users on there, which takes up a lot of memory. I want to take my daughter of his laptop but I'm convinced that if I go on my son's laptop and delete my daughter's account, she will not have an account on her laptop either which would be awful. We have had a call back from Microsoft and were told to delete the account but I didn't trust the advice as the person clearly didn't understand the situation.

CANNOT GET ON TO GOOGLE CHROME

Windows XP

When I try to open Chrome on my Laptop it comes up with the message- Ask for permission You'll need to ask an adult in your family if you can use: Google Chrome. However within the family that is set up myself and the other account are both adults so I do not understand why is occurring. Please help me. I only added myself as an adult to the family as I was stuck on a child account for my Xbox so the only way I could fix it was by adding myself to the family. Please help me.

Lost apps and Edge after recent update

Windows XP

After the recent "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3213986)" my PC has lost all Tiles, all the programs and apps are showing as New, Edge and Facebook and Twitter (maybe others) have disappeared both from the taskbar and the start list of programs. I have checked my Network and that had changed to Public (?) so I have reset that to Private. I have done a sfc/scannow on the Admin Command Prompt which found no problems. and still the problem persists. Anyone understand what is going on and know how to cure it other than maybe uninstalling the update.

Loading keys with text

Windows XP

Since the new version of Outlook the program does not hold previously entered email addresses. I would like to load a Function key, Alt key, Alt Gr key or Windows key with text, (for example, an email address), that would be kept permanently on the key for repeated use. Can anyone suggest a way of doing this? I have looked in the windows help but cannot find an answer. Thanks in advance.
