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 or $199 for Professional edition. 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.

Upgrade to Windows 10 using the ISO file

A clean installation of Windows 10

Activate Windows 10 without using any software

this is expired windows license we have to renew

If you are using another version of Windows, please go to Homepage and select a suitable method.

Method 1: Manual activation

Step 1: Select the right key for your Windows.
Here is the list of Windows 10 volume license keys.

Home: TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99
Home N: 3KHY7-WNT83-DGQKR-F7HPR-844BM
Home Single Language: 7HNRX-D7KGG-3K4RQ-4WPJ4-YTDFH
Home Country Specific: PVMJN-6DFY6-9CCP6-7BKTT-D3WVR
Professional: W269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX
Professional N: MH37W-N47XK-V7XM9-C7227-GCQG9
Education: NW6C2-QMPVW-D7KKK-3GKT6-VCFB2
Education N: 2WH4N-8QGBV-H22JP-CT43Q-MDWWJ
Enterprise: NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43
Enterprise N: DPH2V-TTNVB-4X9Q3-TJR4H-KHJW4

 

Step 2: Right-click on the start button and open Command Prompt (Admin).

open windows command prompt with admin rights

 

Step 3: Use the command “slmgr /ipk yourlicensekey” to install a license key (yourlicensekey is the activation key you got above).
install windows 10 kms license using "ipk" command

(*Note*: You need to hit [Enter] key to execute commands.)

the license has been installed successfully

 

Step 4: Use the command “slmgr /skms kms8.msguides.com” to connect to my KMS server.
register new kms server address using "skms" command
the server address has been added successfully

 

Step 5: The last step is to activate your Windows using the command “slmgr /ato”.
activate your windows 10 using "ato" command
my windows has been activated successfully

 

Check the activation status again.
this is windows activation status after doing all steps

Method 2: Using a batch file

Step 1: Copy the following code into a new text document.

    My brother i must confess your post is the best when it comes to windows 10 free activation. I active my windows 10 enterprise within a seconds. Am very happy i have been going through all the net but no solution but you did. Thanks bro. I see the second method, if you use the second method and it says your version is not supported make sure you have an internet connection it working perfectly

    Guang,

    Great work! Question though, on MS’s site they say: “By default, KMS clients which have not yet been activated will attempt to contact the KMS host every two hours. KMS clients which have successfully activated with the KMS host must renew their activation at least once every 180 days. These machines will contact the KMS host every seven days for this purpose. Any time the renewal is successful, the 180-day count resets.”

    If your server isn’t there in 180 days, will we be deactivated?

    Wow! This was easier than I could have imagined. On first attempt to enter the product key, the message said it was an invalid product key. However, I proceeded according to the instructions anyway. After connecting to the Kms.misguides.com server, I re entered the product key and — success. Finished the last step, rebooted and doubled checked to make sure it was still valid and it was. Thank you so much!

    You saved my computer bro! It was going on and on about the need to activate it but I was just giving it a cold shoulder by closing the windows and stuff until one day this annoying watermark saying “Activate Windows Now” is hovering at the edge of the screen. It even said that my code is no longer supported by bla bla organization service etc bla bla. I clicked Troubleshoot and it said that my DIGITAL LICENSE is only designed for Windows 10 Home Single Based bla bla and i was hoping on going for a clean install of the downgrade but i found this 2nd method of yours and somehow in the first of its attempts to activate windows it went like “not found in my KMS server, let me try another…” and then the 2nd attempt, the water mark vanished IMMEDIATELY and i doubled checked on the activation service and it was activated using my organization’s service. Thank you! Omg

    It worked in my computer but only for 180 days, not for lifetime, can you suggest us how to activate for lifetime.

    Well done my new friend. The first method worked like a charm for me. Windows 10 Pro. Thank you very much

  68. It Works

    I found out why method 1 did not work, when you do slmgr /skms, the one thats on this page is worng, you have to go to bit.ly/aw10z to see the avaiable addresses and put that instead for /ato to work. Hope this helps anyone trying the first method

      See my above comment to help you out doing the first method since second doesn’t work for me either.

    I recently had to reinstall my Windows 7 on a new HDD and upgrade to Windows 10 Pro via Microsoft’s ISO file. Since I only acquired a temporary product key, activation was needed too. Thank you very much Mr. Guang, for creating this effective instructional content and activation of my new Windows 10 Pro!

    Worked just fine for me..used method 2…and win10 pro is still the same after activation
    thanks a lot.
    The only thing is that as i try to get the product key using several software tools ,its reported that it is either not found ( by several apps) or BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB-BBBBB by “showkeyplus”.
    Is there a way you know to do something about it.
    Thanks again.

    Hi, Guang.
    Thank you for super duper helpful website.
    I’m sorry if I’m sound greedy, but would you add new article about how to upgrade win 10 home to win 10 pro?
    Anyway, I found your website few years ago, I really want to be friend with you. But can’t find your personal contact and you seems too busy to recognize me.

    Hi Guang, thanks for this activation methode, by the way, why I have not seen Windows activated with a digital license? It is permanent activation or only for 180 days? Thanks a lot

    1. Jorrin

      Its for 1 month, sometimes it activates automatically again after that period of time and otherwise just do these steps again.

    Hi, my Windows 10 activated only for 180 days, and I can’t activate it anymore, anyone know a way that works at 100% ? After upgrading from Windows 8.1 my Windows wasn’t activated, and at first, it’s okay, I could do what I want, but now…. it’s annoying… I can’t even change the background…

    Reply

      I think it is not permanent activation, If you can check on setting and updated security and click activation, If really permanent active you Activation WINDOWS IS ACTIVATED WITH A DIGITAL LICENSE.

          Now IPv4 is out, no more new IP for anyone, and IPv6 incoming… like a lazy lizard. So many people be inside NAT and using 1 IP! Is not good. I think maybe he is the spammer or a strange naive anon… I really don’t know. But I see NONE/TRUTH uses a VPN (‘VPNBook’) and I don’t recommend ban this IP because it can get block to other good people. I think, yes, maybe NONE/TRUTH create the mistake but it not a reason to create more.

          P. S. KMS server is a great idea. Now I can use Windows 10 and forget horrible Vista. Thanks!
