Why Activate Windows 10
Windows is the most popular Operating System around the world. It is because this OS is based on GUI (Graphical User-Interface) which means we can do anything by using a mouse and clicking on icons. This is the reason why everyone preferred this over other OS like Linux, Ubuntu Raspberry etc.
But the problem with Windows is the activation, as this is the paid OS while others are totally free. There are many people who purchased this but don’t know the procedure of activation. Even though there are many people who didn’t get the key and still wanted to activate it.

Ok, so finally here are the two methods that you can use for activation. The first method is for those who have the product key and the second is only for those without a product key.
In case you have a license then just follow the first guide otherwise scroll down the second guide.
