Windows 10 keys to install on any PC


Windows 10 keys to install on any PC

Microsoft for years has tried to combat piracy and the installation of its operating system by those who do not buy the software or its license. One of the most effective ways has been thanks to contracts with brands of laptops and desktops, of which the vast majority have already previously installed and included in the price the Windows 10 key that includes the user license. Windows 10 activation occurs when you start these computers for the first time after following a few startup steps. You may also need to download and install Windows 10 from here .

However, on integrator desktops or those that we assemble ourselves, we still need to obtain Windows 10 separately. In case we are not sure if we want to buy the license and we want to try it first, Microsoft allows us to try it for free.

Whatever our purpose, the point is that Microsoft offers us a free download of Windows 10 and a series of keys that allow its activation to test it.

Install Microsoft Windows 10 for free

To install Windows 10 the first thing we must do is download the software. We can do it directly from Microsoft's website using their download tool. To do this, you just have to follow the steps in this guide: Download and install Windows 10 for free

The tool in question allows not only the download of the full operating system but also the preparation of a USB storage drive so that we can easily install any version of Windows 10 from scratch.

It is likely that during the installation process we will have to enter a Windows 10 key. If you do not have a purchased license, you can always enter one of the keys indicated in the next section, which will allow you to complete the installation .

Generic Windows 10 keys

In order to test your operating system, Microsoft offers us, in addition to the free download of its Windows 10 operating system, a series of test keys that allow you to install it and start using it immediately on any computer. The key to use depends on the version of the operating system that we are interested in testing. These are the 4 keys available:

  • Windows 10 Home key: TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99
  • Windows 10 Home Key Single Language: 7HNRX-D7KGG-3K4RQ-4WPJ4-YTDFH
  • Windows 10 Pro key: VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T
  • Windows 10 Enterprise key: NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43

It is important to mention that you have to put the product key of the version of Windows 10 that we have installed, whether it is Home, Pro or Enterprise.

Keep in mind that the trial period ends after 30 days from the installation of the equipment and you will have to acquire a Windows 10 license to continue using it normally. The license can be easily acquired from the Windows store, whose icon we have by default in the taskbar. Windows 10 can only be activated with a purchased license.

If you do not buy a license or do not change the product key for a purchased one, a large number of functions will stop working and the computer will start to restart every 3 hours.

Whether you end up purchasing the license or you settle for the trial period, we hope you enjoy using one of the best operating systems ever made by Microsoft.

Updated: The most modern versions of Windows 10 do not require a generic key to be installed, just check the option "Enter the key later" to complete the installation process.
