This method involved the use of your command prompt (CMD). Here’s how to go about it.

I have created a video guide for this, you can watch the video below:

Step 1. Run CMD As Administrator

Either ways, your command prompt will open.

The following is the list of Windows 10 Volume license keys:

Otherwise, the other methods below will surely work. 

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
  • KMSPico

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 officialkmspico.com)
  • Open the software after Installation.
  • Once the software opens, click on the Red button and your Windows 10 will be activated immediately!

That’s all, you have successfully activated your Windows 10 PC. Now, you can enjoy the full benefits.

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

search defender settings

  • Turn off Real Time Protection

disable real time protection

  • Next, download Microsoft Toolkit by clicking here.
  • Unzip the file and Install it. (Password is mstoolkit.org)
  • Then, open the Microsoft Toolkit.exe file, install and allow installation to be completed.

extract windows activator

  • Open the software and click on the Windows icon beside the Settings button in the software

select windows button

  • 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.

Activate Windows 10 using Activator File

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.

save code as bat file

  • 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 and click Enter. 

restart pc

  • 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 2022 for free without activator or key.

  1. Excuse me , actually it’s showing activating windows (R) , professional addition error 0xC004F074 , pls I Don know what’s going on and I am continuing trying but I can’t get windows. Can you help me

  2. Hi
    By mistake i gave the education key , it did not get activated but my edition got changed from professional..to education. How to revert. kindly help.

  3. Using command prompt actually worked! I used it a few months ago and it didn’t but I came back and it did. Had to use the right key though lol took me a second but thank you so much finally that watermark is gone!

  4. every Step worked on the 1st method up until slmgr /ato it gave the error

    “Activating Windows(R), Core edition
    Error: 0x8007007E The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax
    is incorrect. (SWbemObjectEx)”


  5. 1st option popped up an error saying DNS doesn’t exist, and the download page for KMSPico kept sending invalid responses, but the Windows Toolkit did the trick!!! Thanks a TON!!!

    • There are 2 passwords, one for each software depending on which you choose to choose. Both of them are in the guide, but you didn’t state which anyway.

  6. Nice info. Thanks. Does using the above steps work if you install Windows 11 on a new formatted disk without having Windows 10 previously. In other words, can I activate Windows 11 with the same Volume license keys ?

  7. Hi, i am having trouble activating my windows 10 pro, i followed all the steps, and it keeps saying, the organization can not be activated as their is no connection to the organization server. please help. thank you.

  8. If activating via the first (recommended) version and not the last (unrecommended), since no KMS server is used, won’t Windows need to be reactivated in 30 days?
    If the last method was used (before reading this article), can the KMS information be removed and Windows still be activated?
