As everyone knows that Microsoft announces that the Windows 10 is a final version. So there is no more Windows update will come in future so it is recommended to upgrade to the newer version soon. It is because Windows 7 is also going to end which means that it will never get update anymore.

How to Activate Windows 10
There are several ways to activate Win10 which I have covered in this article. So, first of all, if you purchased a key but you don’t know how to use it then let me tell you steps which you need to follow.
Note: If you are installing a fresh new Windows 10 in your system then you will be asked to enter the Key during installation. So, simply enter that key there and it will be activated after the installation is completed.
If you just skip the Enter Key option during installation or purchased key after the installation then you need to open Settings > Go to Update & Security > Activation > & then click on Enter Product Key.
Now enter that product key which you just purchased and then click on Enter. Please make sure to have a proper internet connection because it works online. It will take some time and your Windows 10 will be activated in a few seconds.
For those who are unable to purchase license key because of money then he can use the below product keys:

These keys are working and tested by me personally so you can also use it to activate Windows 10 Free of cost. But the activation process for this is a little bit different and there are two ways to activate by using these keys. The first method is by activating manually and another method requires you to create a batch file.
So, first, we will talk about the manual process:
1. Click on Start Menu and then look for the Command Prompt or you can search in Cortana.
2. Now right click on CMD and click on Run as Administrator a warning dialogue will prompt so ignore it and click on Yes.
3. In the Command Prompt add this command “slmgr /ipk yourlicensekey” (enter the key which you just copied from above according to Windows version and make sure to don’t add quotes) & then hit Enter.
4. Let the code execute and it may take some time wait for a few seconds until it executes completely and then moves to another step.
5. After this, you need to enter this command “slmgr /skms kms8.msguides.com”. It will connect you to the KMS server.
6. When you successfully connected to KMS server then you will need to enter this command “slmgr /ato”. That’s it will then show you a dialogue message saying your Windows is activated successfully.
It is the easiest solution for people who don’t know how to activate Windows 10 but if you are having a problem while following the steps then you should go with the automatic method.
Let’s check how you can activate Windows 10 automatically.
1. So, first of all, you need to copy the code by following the link given below:
2. After this open the Start Menu and search for the Notepad and open it as you do normally.
3. Paste the code which you copied from the link provided above and then save it as ActivateWindows10.cmd. Make sure to save it as .cmd otherwise it won’t work and it will open as a normal text file.
4. Now after saving the batch file right click on it and click on Run as Administrator. It will then start CMD and execute some codes automatically.
5. You need to wait for some time until this code connects you to the KMS server and then it will be activated automatically.
That’s it you have now successfully activated your Win 10 without purchasing a product key automatically. It is the best and the newest method which you can implement for the activation of the Win 10 Operating system.
In case these methods don’t work for you as well then there is another possible way which works 100% fine and is the stable method. This method required to have an activator so let me tell you some best activators which you can use.
How to Activate Windows 10 Using Activator
There are many activators available on the internet but the problem is that some of them contain virus while others don’t work well and sometimes they even damage your Windows. To avoid this issue I am sharing with you the best activator which works almost all the time and I personally use it.
Activate Windows KMSPico
The name of this activator is KMSPico which is scanned by Virus Total and found no malware or trojan in it. It is the only tool available on the internet which is very famous among individuals nowadays. This is because that is developed by the most trustful Team Daz who has contributed so many activators for the Windows users.
This tool is suitable for every Windows edition and can activate both architectures as well. Some Antivirus may show you it is the virus but only causes because these types of piracy tools are blacklisted by these tools. So you just need to ignore that because it doesn’t contain any virus and I never face any problem while using it.
It works offline and you don’t need to have an internet connection for the activation also it is very light in size which doesn’t consume huge space in your PC. This can be removed after activation but your activation will remain the same until you install a new fresh Windows. It is the permanent solution for every Windows edition and it also supports Win7, Windows 8 & Windows 8.1. The best thing about this is at it also supports the activation for Microsoft Office and its all version up to 2007.

How to Activate Windows 10 Microsoft Toolkit
Another tool which can also be used is Microsoft Toolkit this was built by the unknown developers. It is also a free tool just like the KMSPico activator it is also used to activate Windows 10 without having a product key. There are two methods for the activation first one is by using the AutoKMS method while other is by using the EZ Activation method. The old name of this toolkit was EZ Activator which works on the internet connection so you have to connect to a proper internet connection then you can activate Windows otherwise you will face errors.
After the recent updates, they renamed it as Microsoft Toolkit and also they added a feature of Offline activation. If you are going to use the offline method then you need to use the AutoKMS. KMS is the technology of Microsoft which connects all the computer of a huge company to a server where it activates all of them at once.
But in case you are trying to activate through the internet then you should move to the EZ Activation. It is also a safe and secure method so don’t worry about your data steal as it is also trusted by the Virus Total. Some of the Antivirus may show you it as the virus so don’t worry just ignore it and disable it you can then able to activate your Windows by using Toolkit.
