How to Activate Windows 10 EASILY


Activation of Microsoft Windows 10 OS is the next important operation that you should carry out on your system as soon as it had been installed.

Activation is necessary because it helps to verify that your copy of Windows is genuine and hasn’t been used on more devices than the Microsoft Software License Terms allow.

 Depending on how you got your copy of Windows 10, activation will use either a digital license or a 25-character product key.





Method 1
Get Windows 10 Activated Using Digital License.

Microsoft introduced an easier activation method for Windows 10 called "digital license" or "digital entitlement".

 This method of activating Microsoft Windows 10 is free and easy.

 It allows you to carry out the activation without having to enter the product key.

However, you should note that there are some cases that this kind of activation method is limited to.
Windows 10 will use the “digital license” (digital entitlement) activation method, if one of the following is true:

1. You bought genuine Windows 10 from the Store and successfully activated Windows 10.

2. You upgraded to Windows 10 for free from an eligible device running a genuine copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1.

3. You bought a Windows 10 Pro upgrade from the Store and successfully activated Windows 10.

4. You’re a Windows Insider and upgraded to the newest Windows 10 Insider Preview build on an eligible device that was running an activated earlier version of Windows and Windows 10 Preview.


PRO TIP: In order to activate your Windows 10 using " digital license ", all you have to do is to browse the internet with it. It will automatically activate on its own.






Method 2
Get Windows 10 Activated Using Product Key.

Windows 10 will use the “Product Key” activation method, if one of the following is true:

1. You bought a digital copy of Windows 10 from an authorized retailer.

You will find the product key in the confirmation email you received after buying Windows 10 or in a digital locker accessible through the retailer’s website.

A digital license will be given to your device for Windows 10 based on the valid product key you entered.

If you bought the physical copy of Windows 10, you will find the product key on a label inside the Windows 10 box.

A digital license will be given to your device for Windows 10 based on the valid product key you entered.)

2. You bought a new device running Windows 10.
The product key might already be preinstalled on your device, included with the device packaging, or included as a card or on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to the device.



PRO TIP: When you buy a new laptop or desktop which came with Microsoft Windows 10 OS, you should make sure that the packaging contains the certificate of authenticity. The certificate of authenticity contains the product key which will be used for activation purposes.




HOT TIP: If you have lost your product, you can follow the steps below to purchase a new product key from the Microsoft online store for $200 only.
