  • “Great article I’ve been following along, and when I get to the Load Unpacked Extension part, the icon that appears in chrome://extensions has something added to it. It’s a camera symbol inside orange circle. This is laid on top of my icon in the bottom right hand corner. What is that?

  • TheMegaPirate77 about half of what you said was correct but that means the other half is wrong,haha ofc hacking is illegal but opening up ISO’s is only illegal if you pirate them, what most people would do and this is legal is if they have the game disc they would take the ISO’s and do this so they wont have to put in the disc to play on the other hand the illegal part is if you go to a site and download the isos and do this that is pirating same thing as downloading mp3s and puting on ipod

  • Thanks for sharing valuable this information. One caveat you should be aware of upfront is that you can no longer download an ISO for Windows 10.2.0. And the product keys are different for Windows 10.2.0, so if you have a Windows 10.2.0 product key, you can’t just use it to install Windows 10.2.0 for Windows 10 is a great activator tool that will use to activate your Windows or Office activation.
