Anyone can do that as it’s nothing more than some baby-steps. I no longer have to see the watermark and most importantly, I can customize my Windows more! 😀

In this guide, I will show you one simple trick to activate any Windows 10 versions. Remember, I installed the latest Windows 10 Professional from Microsoft’s Download Tool which is considered the safest.

I recommend you not to download Windows from third party sites or torrent sites. They are not safe and why would you do that? You’re getting it for free from Microsoft.

I spotted some major differences between the pirated Windows 10 and the original which I downloaded from Microsoft. Anyway, let’s talk about how you can activate your Windows 10 PC.

Here’s the step-by-step tutorial

Now you need to follow the steps elaborately. You don’t need to worry, it’s dead simple! 😉

Open Notepad and paste the code.

Windows 10 Activation Code, Windows 10 activation .bat file

I have provided the code you need to paste in Notepad. It will take you no longer than 30 seconds to copy-paste this code.

Save the file as a .BAT life.

Save as .bat file, save .bat file, windows .bat file

The most crucial step is saving the file as a .bat file. Make sure you choose Save as type as All Files and also type .bat after your desired name.

I choose TechiePaw.bat and you can choose anything you wish to. 😉

Run the .bat file as administrator.

Run .bat file as admin in Windows 10

Another most important step is running the file as admin. If you don’t do this, you’re likely to see errors when the Command Prompt processes the codes. So, make sure you have run this as administrator.

Restart your computer.

Windows 10 Activated without key, activate windows 10 without key, activate windows 10 with CMD, windows 10 activated .bat file

You need to wait for about 10-15 seconds. Once you see the message which asks to restart your PC, you know it’s done. Simply type Y and press Enter.

Once you have restarted your computer, you no longer have to see that annoying activate Windows watermark. This is how you can activate Windows 10 without a key. 😀


One of the biggest benefits of activating your Windows 10 is that you can start customizing your desktop. I just hated that one Windows 10 theme so I follow these steps and just got the official activated Windows.

You also get rid of the watermark which is quite an annoyance, especially if you’re in-game. I am able to use all the Windows 10 features along with all the updates which is dope!

If you have a slow internet connection, you probably cannot download Windows 10 again, but there’s nothing to worry about. This will work on any version of Windows which is the best part. 😀

However, I strongly recommend downloading the official Windows 10 ISO from Microsoft which is absolutely free. You can try improving WiFi speed and I wrote a guide on that a few weeks ago.
