2 ways to activate Windows 10 for FREE without additional 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 or 12 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.

    This method is not working for me, i have activated the windows using this method but after a month It shows activate windows again. and using the same batch file I cant get it activated. It is saying windows is running non core edition.

      non core edition mean Your windows system has error. You need to solve out the error before redo activation.

        Thank you for your efforts. But my question is, what if you aren’t connected online on the seventh day,does it expire?. Again how long does it take to fully activate the windows automatically on the seventh day.

        Reply
        1. kWong

          When activation success, it can use 180 days without online. But without online meant you can’t get update from Microsoft.

          After seventh day, is 173 days left behind, if you ‘re not online, no problem. When you next time online, will activate back to 180 days.

          Activate is doing in background, not long,you won’t know unless you check how may days left behind.

        thanks but what do you mean exactly by “every seventh day when online”? So it will expire after 180 days and then I will wait and keep using the “temporarily EXPIRED” version for seven days? and then after seven days it will activate on its own???????

        1. kWong

          If you on holidays more than seven day without turn on your PC. When you come back, log in Your PC, will automatic renew back to 180 days.
