One common issue Windows 10 users encounter is Windows activation. Microsoft has made it strict that anyone using the software must buy a product key directly from the company or any allow license dealer. For instance, you won’t be able to personalize your computer until the software is activated. For this reason, you will need a product key from the company which costs around $120- $130.

Have you been seeing the “Activate Windows; go to settings to activate Windows” prompt on your screen just like the image below? Microsoft is telling you to activate your windows. The prompt can be a little frustrating for people who just bought a laptop but not directly from Microsoft.

However, I am going to show you how to remove the prompt permanently and activate windows without the use of a product key.

The CMD command must have been opened by now. Now type slmgr /ipk yourlicensekey and hit the ENTER button to run a command.

For instance, if you are using Windows 10 Pro type slmgr /ipk W269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GX, then hit ENTER.

Every Windows edition has its own license key.

The following are the license keys of other windows editions.

Congratulation! You have successfully activated your Windows.

However, if that doesn’t work for you, let’s go to the second method, which I believed was going to work out. So, close the CMD command editor and open it again. Don’t forget to run it as an administrator.

In this method, you are first going to check if your computer was earlier used by an organization. It happened in most cases that the organization that used the computer before bought it directly from Microsoft with the product key. So, before you can activate windows 10, you must contact the organization and request the product key.

But the good part is that you will not be doing all that. I will show you how to check if the computer was earlier used by an organization, and how to activate it for FREE and permanently. Keep on reading.

Step 2: Type this command slmgr.vbs /dlv to check if the windows or computer were used by an organization, don’t forget to hit the ENTER button. If an organization used it, the command will display all the values. If you see GVLK, that means it was earlier used by an organization.

Step 3: In the next line, type this command slmgr /ato as seen on the image above and then hit the ENTER button to activate windows. Your Windows will activate immediately.

That’s all. You have just activated Windows 10, using the organization’s product key. I am certain this method will work for you.

To check if you successfully activate windows, go to Setting >> Windows Update >> Activation to confirm.

These are the easiest methods, and I am absolutely certain it will work for you. Just follow and enter the commands as stated in this post.
