Free Windows 10 Activators (Works 100%)
There is another method to activate your Windows 10 using free activators.
The best activators I tried and are working very well are:
- Microsoft Toolkit
You know the best part?
You do not need to keep these software after use.
Even when you uninstall them, your Windows will be remain activated.
Now, I will show you how to use each Windows activator easily.
Windows Activator 1 – KMSPico
- Also, you need to disable Real Time Protection under the Windows Defender Settings.
- Now, download KMSPico software by clicking here.
- Unzip and install the software (Password is 12345)
- Open the software after Installation.
- Once the software opens, click on the Red button and your Windows 10 will be activated immediately!
Windows Activator 2 – Microsoft Toolkit
First, you need to temporarily disable Anti-virus and Windows Defender Protection (this is necessary because the antivirus will not allow Microsoft Toolkit to modify system registry which is needed to activate Windows).
- Search for Windows Defender Settings and click on it
- Turn off Real Time Protection
- Next, download Microsoft Toolkit by clicking here.
- Unzip the file and Install it. (Password is 123)
- Open the software and click on the Windows icon beside the Settings button in the software
- Click on Product Keys tab and select the Product and Edition (e.g Windows 10 Professional). Click on Install.
- Now, go to the Activation tab, select KMS Server Service and click Install.
- Finally, click on Activate. Your Windows will be activated immediately.
- If that doesn’t work, click on E-Z Activator.
How Not To Activate Windows 10
Although this method will also help you to activate your Windows 10 easily, I do not recommend it.
It involves the use of .bat file
- First, copy the code below:
The server in the code might have access to your computer, and that is why I do not recommend this method of activation
Your system might detect it as a virus and remove it (one of the reasons why I DO NOT recommend this method).
- Save the file as activator.bat and pick All files as the file type.
- Right Click on the file and Run as Administrator
- Wait for the Command Prompt to complete running the code.
- When you receive the message whether to restart PC, enter Y and click Enter.
- Your PC will restart and your Windows will be activated.
I believe by now, you have been able to activate your Windows 10 for free without using any product key.
Personally, I used the first method to activate my Windows 10 in 2020 for free without activator or key.
