Dear friend,

Happy to see you here. Come, let us see some Frequently asked questions about activating windows. Here are also answers to some common questions about activating Windows.

Is activation the same as registration?

No. Activation is required, but registration is not. Activation is the process of ensuring that Windows on your computer is used according to the Microsoft Software License Terms. Registration is the process of entering information (such as your e‑mail address) to sign up for product support, tools and tips, and other product benefits.

Does activation collect information that is used to contact me?

No. The information collected during activation will not be used to contact you.

Is activation required?

Yes. You have 30 days after installing Windows to activate it online or by telephone. When Windows is activated, you'll be able to use every feature of Windows.

To activate Windows on this computer, do the following:

open Windows activation.‌  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

If I activated Windows, why is Windows on my computer non-genuine?

Genuine Windows is a recurring process that checks your product key to ensure it's being used with the hardware it was paired with during activation. If the product key is found to be non-genuine, or not valid, it's likely that the product key is either being used on another computer or is counterfeit.

Do I need to activate Windows after making a hardware change?

Maybe. When you make a significant hardware change to your computer, such as upgrading the hard disk and memory at the same time, you might be required to activate Windows again.

To activate Windows on this computer, do the following:

open Windows activation.‌  If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

If automatic activation fails, follow the screens that walk you through activating Windows by phone. You'll have three days to activate Windows after changing your hardware.

Will I ever need to activate Windows on my computer again?

Maybe. You might have to activate Windows again if:

  • You uninstall Windows on one computer and then install it on another. During installation, enter the product key that came with Windows. If automatic activation fails, follow the instructions that walk you through activating Windows by phone. You'll have 30 days to activate Windows.

  • You make a significant hardware change to your computer, such as upgrading the hard disk and memory at the same time. If a major hardware change requires activating Windows again, you'll be notified and will have three days to activate Windows.

  • You reformat your hard disk. Reformatting erases your activation status. In this case, you’ll have 30 days to activate Windows again.

  • A virus infects your computer and deletes your activation status.

If you have to activate Windows again on the same computer, you don't need to buy a new product key.

To activate Windows on this computer, do the following:

open Windows activation.‌

If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Can I use my product key on more than one computer?

You cannot use Windows on more computers than the Microsoft Software License Terms allow. Usually the license terms allow the Windows product key to be used on one computer. To use Windows from the same installation disc on another computer, install it on the second computer. You will need to activate Windows again on the second computer. During installation, enter the product key that came with your Windows installation disc. If automatic activation fails, follow the screens that walk you through activating Windows by phone. You'll have 30 days to activate Windows.

Note
  • If you install Windows on a second computer, you must buy an additional product key to activate the second installation to continue using Windows on both computers.
