This guide is for beginners who are Users in the computing world and don’t know a little bit about it. It can also be helpful for old computer users because I will provide some new tips & tricks that old users may also don’t know about it.
As everyone knows that Microsoft announces that Windows 10 is the final version. So no more Windows updates will come in the 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 updated anymore. There are several ways to upgrade it like downloading Windows 10 ISO image and then burning it in a USB or DVD and installing it as you do usually.
Now the problem comes after you update Windows because it required activation after 30 days. Because this Windows 10 comes with a 30-day of free trial after it expires you will then need to purchase a license key and activate it.
Otherwise, you will be restricted from using several features like changing the theme, and installing some applications, and won’t get updates that may harm your PC as well.
Here the question arises is there any way to activate Windows 10 without purchasing a product key? The answer will be simply Yes, read this guide completely where I will tell you how you can do it by yourself as well.
How to Activate Windows 10 Officially
- Go to Settings
- Then Go to Update & Security
- Below Activation
- & click on Enter Product Key
- After this check Confirm Box

Now enter that product key that 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.

These keys are working and tested by me personally so you can also use them 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 your license key” (enter the key which you just copied from above according to the Windows version and make sure to don’t add quotes) & then hit Enter.
4. Let the code execute and it may take some time to 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 the 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, you should go with the automatic method.
Let’s check how you can activate Windows 10 automatically.
- So, first of all, you need to copy the code below:

In case these methods don’t work for you as well then there is another possible way that 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 Free Using Activator
There are many activators available on the internet but the problem is that some of them contain viruses 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 with 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 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 caused 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 on 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 of Microsoft Office and its all version up to 2007.

How to Activate Windows 10 with Microsoft Toolkit
Another tool that can also be used is Microsoft Toolkit which was built by 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 the 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 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 AutoKMS. KMS is the technology of Microsoft that connects all the computers 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 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.

The methods described above are 100% tested and are working fine without having an issue. I personally tested and that’s why I am sharing it with you so you can also get the benefits of it.
It is because most people can’t afford to buy a license key. In this case, they can get a copy of the key from above and activate it by using the method I have given above.
Somehow if you don’t know about the version and you want to activate it as well. Then I would highly recommend going for the activators as these are the only best solution which works automatically.
So, you don’t have to follow any extra and difficult steps just install it and you will then be able to activate your Windows. Further, you can read by going to the links of recommended tools above and reading how you can use them.
