Locate your product key for Windows 10
Depending on how you got your copy of Windows 10, you’ll need either a 25-character product key or a digital license to activate it. A digital license (called a digital entitlement in Windows 10, Version 1511) is a method of activation in Windows 10 that doesn’t require you to enter a product key. Without one of these, you won’t be able to activate your device.
Where to find your product key depends on how you got your copy of Windows.
Select any of the following to see more information:
The product key is preinstalled on your PC, included with the packaging the PC came in, or included on the Certificate of Authenticity (COA) attached to the PC.

The product key is on a label or card inside the box that Windows came in. For more info, contact the retailer that sold you Windows 10. How to tell your software is genuine.
Find your product key in the confirmation email you received after buying Windows 10 or in a digital locker accessible through the retailer’s website.
The product key is in the confirmation email you received after buying your digital copy of Windows. Microsoft only keeps a record of product keys if you purchased from the Microsoft online store. You can find out if you purchased from Microsoft in your Microsoft account Order history.
If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free from Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you should have a digital license instead of a product key.
If you bought Windows 10 Home, Professional, or Upgrade to Pro in the Windows 10 Store app, you’ll receive a digital license instead of a product key. You can use the digital license for activation.
If your product key is scratched, blurred, or otherwise unusable, contact the retailer who sold you the product. If you aren’t able to get help from your retailer or have already tried and couldn’t get a working key, call Microsoft Support.

We believe that this was Microsoft’s answer to Apple and Microsoft’s criticizers. For years there has been this criticism on Microsoft that its Windows (different versions that came along in all those years) were not as stable as macOS.
And it was not far from the truth. Except from Windows 2000, all versions of Windows have been buggy and unstable. Windows was always mocked for being the most unsecure and unstable computer operating system.
If you asked us the truth, Windows 10 is still not as stable and ‘light’ as macOS is, but it is also a matter of fact, that Windows 10 is far better than all previous versions of Windows. Not only it presents a more personalized experience, but it is a very stable operating system too.
Couple it with a powerful RAM and an SSD hard drive, and you’d never have a problem like you used to have with every other Windows version. This article is about Windows 10 product keys, what they are and how you can easily get one when your Windows asks for it.
- Copy & Paste code into new text document on your PC
- Rename this file as «1click.cmd».
- Run it.
What are the Product Keys?
A product key is also known as a software key. Whenever you make a software purchase online, you get a product key that proves/validates your legitimate purchase.
Windows 10 is also software. The product key that you get with your version certifies that your copy was not acquired by violating Microsoft’s copyrights. You do not need to activate the product key while installing Windows 10 or its Pro version.
You do that when Windows asks for it periodically. And that’s where the problem occurs. A lot of people find themselves unable to find the Windows product key that they got with it. The matter of product keys is a sensitive one. They establish authorization and in case you cannot find the product key, you won’t be able to have access to actual home page wallpaper. Moreover, you’d see this nasty “Windows isn’t activated. Activate Windows now” line on your computer screen – whatever software or program you open.
Another thing about Windows 10 product keys is that it is almost impossible to “guess” a key. Why? Well, first of all, all of them are generated by the software. Definitely Windows is the biggest computer operating system and they cannot create these keys manually. Software created keys are random and hackproof – no password cracking tools can help you with that.
Secondly, Window product keys are not only made of numbers. They have a randomly selected combination of numbers and alphabets. The pattern is something like this ***** — ***** — ***** — ***** — ***** . As you can see it is a combination of 25 digits and alphabets. Speaking of how randomly they are chosen, no set of 5 characters always consists of numbers and alphabets; at times a set of 5 characters can be made of only alphabets.
So, in short, you can see how hard it is to predict a Windows 10 product key. It is so difficult that even password cracking tools cannot find one. However, this does not mean that you do not have any hope. There are certain tips and hacks of Windows activation.
How Product Keys Can be Activated?
Let us assume that you’re the rightful owner of the Windows 10 copy that is installed on your computer.
Now you cannot find the product key and Windows asks you to use the product key to activate your copy again.
Or you have installed Windows 10 on a new computer and when after some time Windows asks you for activation, you do not have the key to activate it.
Now, this is a problem, but you do not need to worry about this. There are many ways to activate Windows 10, and in this article, we are going to discuss all of them at length.
Method#1: List of Windows 10 Product Keys

Method#3 Software Activator for Windows 10
Now you might believe it or not, but there is certain software that can be used to activate Windows 10 Home or Pro.
Many of that software is third-party software and they automatically fetch product keys and activate the Windows 10.
However, there is a caveat that you must be aware of. Any such software does not offer a “really” free activation of Windows 10. Why? Well, there is this old saying that there is nothing like a free lunch (or dinner).
Your best bet is getting software with adware or one that shows ads. Your best bet is getting software that promotes other software or asks you to download them.
Because out there in the free and wild world of the internet, there is Windows activation software that was actually designed to serve an evil goal. This software is designed for different purposes – they can hack your computer, they can secretly use for cryptocurrency mining and they can collect your private data because in 21st-century data is gold.
So the software that we suggest to use it a 100% legal and legitimate software. KMSPico is a software that works like a key management system. Many big companies that use solutions provided by Microsoft on Microsoft operating system (Windows) use KMSPico because hundreds or even thousands of their employees have to use this operating system and they cannot afford to have too many product keys.
KMSPico automatically generates product keys. Whenever a new employee of a company using MS Windows legally acquired copies, needs to activate the Windows, all they do is use KMSPico to generate a product key and activate the Windows all by itself within a very limited time.
These keys are Microsoft MAK (multiple activation keys) that are used by Microsoft along with a KMS (key management system) for big companies/partners with big needs. KMSPico is a KMS and now anyone can get access to it.
The best thing about KMSPico is that it is 100% foolproof and save. You can always remove it after activation of Windows 10 and be extra sure about the safety of your system.
How to use KMSPico? — The Windows Activator
Well, the process is really very simple. Here are the steps that you need to follow.
- Install KMSPico from this link. Once you click download, it will take only a little while and KMSPico .exe will be downloaded.
- Now press the .exe file and initiate the software installation process. It will also not take too much of your time. Remember, KMSPico is the safest online software that you can use to activate your Windows 10.
- Once you have installed KMSPico fully, go to the start button and find KMSPico in the list of programs available on your computer.
- Click it and you would immediately notice the KMSPico interface on your screen. Yes, you should now see a big red button. That is the button that you press to start the activation process.
- In case you are not sure whether your Windows is activated or not, you can follow a simple procedure. Go to your home page and right-click on ‘My Computer’ icon. On the bottom of the menu, you should be able to see ‘Properties’. Left-click this and on the bottom, you will see whether your copy is activated or not.
- Now supposing that it is not activated, we come back to KMSPico. The red button, once pressed, will initiate a few processes. You just need to sit pretty and let it do its job. You would not have to wait any longer than 5 minutes to activate your copy of Windows.
- Now you want to know whether KMSPico worked or not. In most of the cases, KMSPico auto closes itself one activation is done. However, you can always check whether it is activated now or not, by repeating the process that we have explained above.
Now there is a little caveat to all this.
Since KMSPico is now available on so many websites, Microsoft Windows Defender considers it malware and having Windows Defender active, you cannot use KMSPico to activate Windows.
So, after you have installed KMSPico and you think that it is time to activate Windows, you need to go to Windows Defender and deactivate different kinds of protections that it offers.
You must be alarmed as anything. The reason for asking you to do this is pretty simple and we have already explained it. Windows considers this malware only because it activates Windows.
There is no other problem with the software. Once you have deactivated all protections provided by the Windows Defender, you can activate Windows and then activate Windows Defender.
It will immediately find a ‘threat’ and guess what it is KMSPico. You do not need to be alarmed because now you know why Windows considers KMSPico a ‘threat’. Let your Windows Defender dismantle the threat.
Remove from your system if you do not trust it. You can always download it for free.
However, there is one problem with KMSPico. The KMS are not designed for permanent activation of Windows. So, after 6 months or a year or so, your Windows might ask you for the activation again. But you do not need to worry about that because now you have this solution.
In case you want to know whether Windows 10 product keys that we have provided on this website are the best solution to your problem or software like KMSPico, the answer is a rather complex one.
KMSPico makes it easy for you to activate Windows because unlike product keys, you would not have to try one after another.
But there are certain caveats. For people too touchy about the security of their computer, deactivating Windows Defender, even for a while, is a big risk and it is time taking too.
And the activation via KMSPico, while it works, it is not forever.
While product keys on our website might not work 2 out of 10 times, but once a product key works, it activates your Windows forever. And there is software involved, no threat of malware and you do not have to install anything or deactivate your Windows Defender.
Note: If you are sick of old keys, which are not working, check below generator tool once and it will give your fresh values.
Activation with Keys
The keys are mentioned separately for different versions of Windows 10 e.g. home and professional etc. Remember, you cannot use a Windows 10 Home product key for another version of Windows 10 and so goes for Windows 10 Pro, etc.
In case you find out that the product key has already been used by someone, you do not need to worry about that. We know that this is a time taking and a very painstaking process. It definitely tests your patience because all you have to do is try one key after another.
However, we assure you that when compared to other websites offering free Windows 10 product keys, the majority of product keys on our website are usable.
As we have already mentioned, it is a time taking process and it definitely tests one’s patience. The alternative to legit product keys is using legitimate software, but that deal has its own dark side.
It takes a lot of time and space (on your computer) to download software and then you need technical knowhow of how to use it. It takes more time because you have to tweak Windows Defender and then use this third-party defender that we’re going to mention next.
