2 ways to activate Windows 10 for FREE without any software

Posted by in Microsoft Software Products | Last updated on


As you know, Microsoft notified Windows 10 is “the last version of Windows” and explained that they will be focused on the development of powerful and new features under the guise of software updates instead of building a new version. This means there will be no Windows 11 in the future. So if you are thinking about an upgrade, this is the best time to get it.

Windows 10 free upgrade

The representative of Microsoft has confirmed that Windows 10 is a free upgrade for all customers using a genuine copy of Windows 7 or higher. But this offer officially will expire on this Friday so do not hesitate to own it before it is too late. Your time is running out. After July 29, the upgrade will cost up to $119 for Home edition or $199 for Professional one. Personally, that amount of money is enough to pay my rent this month so there are no reason for me to deny that.

Should you upgrade to Windows 10

“Do not upgrade to Windows 10”. This seems to contradict the above analysis but that is the statement of security experts. They said that Microsoft has been violating users’s privacy from collecting their personal information like gender, age, hobby and Internet habits… without your permission. The options relating to sending feedback and data to Microsoft were enabled automatically from the moment that you installed Windows 10 successfully so most people don’t know about them. However, you can disable them in Settings/Privacy easily.

Install Windows 10 using ISO file instead of an upgrade

You can get the latest version of Windows 10 Professional here if you don’t have it already. If you have ever installed any versions of Windows before, I am sure you will have no difficulty getting started with Windows 10. If you are looking to install it with an USB flash drive, please consult the video “How to create a bootable USB stick”. The following are the detailed instructions for installing Windows 10.

      1. Open Windows Defender Firewall
      2. On the lower left side select “Advanced Settings”
      3. Select (left panel) “entry rules” and in the right panel “New rule”
      4. In the wizard select ‘Port’ and next, select ‘TCP’ and in the text box you write 1688, next day, in the next window (by default) you select ‘Allow connection’ and next, they are all marked (Domain , Private, Public) and next, in the last window you put a name to this rule, for example: (Name) KMS_TCP and in description (so you can remember), you can put this, KMS Service of Office activation and Finish.
      5. Now go and execute the activation script (remember that the command console of Windows must execute it as administrator)

            I figured it out. I just upgraded to student edition by entering the correct activation key in winddows settings.

      1,Batch file only work with admin right online.

      2, which method you using, where you got windows 10 download and professional or other?

      3, Installation, come to put in key page, close it, don’t try to put in key to activated , KMS key won’t work in retail version of windows . Must use the two method provided to activated.

      go to check if KMS servers are blocked or not, please open your internet browser then try going to: http:// kms8.msguides.com. If the page is visible, it means this server is not blocked.

      If blocked, firewall setting, , Whitelist, port add kms8.msguides.com:1688

      Run the batch file with admin right must doing online.

      Besides, admin id must without change any setting.

    i did it manually, method 1. but why? cuz till i found this trick i was trying all the keys online and only 1 or 2 was for my win (education N) , then i used that key (2WH4N-8QGBV-H22JP-CT43Q-MDWWJ, is for win10 edu N, not pro) like this:
    slmgr.vbs /ipk 2WH4N-8QGBV-H22JP-CT43Q-MDWWJ
    then set server to get response from like this:
    slmgr.vbs /skms kms8.msguides.com
    then validate online like this:
    slmgr.vbs /ato
    BINGO simple. my win ver 1803.
    1. now, first if you wanna do it manually, chose the right key, i checked it in win activation and it gave me connection error.
    2. there are some ppl around that think is suspicious , but its not. if YOU dont trust, you can rent a server and install KMS software on and use your own server, or use msguides.com and donate 😀
    after writing this im gonna look for btc address to donate,

      Question: When i use “slmgr -xpr” then i see that the activation is only 30 days not 180 days. Why?
