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.

    I recently changed my motherboard, and thus, lost my “product key” inside of it because of the free update ( from w7 to 10 )

    After paying quite a little sum for every component, i really couldn’t afford to pay 140€ to activate it, even though i alerdy had it.. So really, thanks a lot for this. It saved me.

      You could have used the phone activation tool using your W7 key. It has about 10 phone activations before it gets locked/blocked

    but the activation says, “Windows Is Activated using organization’s activation service”. Instead “Windows Is Activated With A Digital License Linked To Your Microsoft Account”. So The Product key u posted on your site are pirated. But well it’s Ok. Atleast The Device is activated than nothing

    So I looked and I already figured out why it works so easily. It switch’s the activation from a personal use to an organization use. What’s the deal with that?

      No , all PC using here KMS activation method is no connection with other PC. KMS activation method is for personal use.

      Just like retail version, everyone activation through Microsoft, still personal use.

      KMS activation success must run KMS activation with admin right online.

      This method only work for Windows 10 Home, Pro and Enterprise.

      But not support Windows 10 Ultimate.

    Dear Guang,
    I have one question.
    When my computer gets connected to your server for activation purpose, am I in any risk of my data getting hijacked? Is there any chance of my computer getting compromised?
    Thanks.

      Free to use , doesn’t meant illegal. KMS method is provide by Microsoft , it safe to use.

      Browsing internet all day and night, internet security software is a must , to protect hacker hack in your PC.

      Here, all the method, only for activation, upgrade from Microsoft just like retail version.

      Enjoy.

      If you happy for the service, a little donation is welcome.

    Dear Guang,
    You are doing a tremendous service for lower income group people in many developing countries, who would like to install windows, but cannot do so because of the exorbitant price tag! Bill Gate may try to project himself as a philanthropist, but Microsoft will never cater to the poor people of this world.Microsoft should follow the example of other software giants like Autodesk, who offer free student’s license for their products.
    Thanks once again,
    Take care

    Hi, I ran your script as-is, and I got Windows 10 Home N.
    Can I modify the script to get Windows 10 Pro?
    or Can I “Change produce key” to get Windows 10 Pro?
    Thanks you

      No, you need to uninstall Windows 10 Home Pro, and restart PC.

      Reinstall Windows 10 Pro Plus. Use this post method to activate.
