Windows 10 Digital License Activation 2018


Windows 10 Digital License Activation 2018




Windows 10 is the latest operating system from Microsoft that offers many features and benefits for its users. However, to enjoy the full functionality of Windows 10, you need to activate it with a valid product key or a digital license. In this article, we will explain what a digital license is, how to get one, and how to reactivate Windows 10 after a hardware change.


What is a digital license?




A digital license (also called a digital entitlement in Windows 10, Version 1511) is a method of activation in Windows 10 that does not require you to enter a product key. A digital license is linked to your device and your Microsoft account, and it allows you to reinstall or reactivate Windows 10 on the same device without entering a product key. A digital license also enables some features that are only available for genuine Windows, such as Windows Hello, Cortana, and Microsoft Store apps.

How to get a digital license?




There are several ways to get a digital license for Windows 10, depending on how you obtained your copy of Windows 10. Here are some common scenarios:


  • If you upgraded to Windows 10 for free from an eligible device running a genuine copy of Windows 7 or Windows 8.1, you will automatically get a digital license for Windows 10 on that device.



  • If you bought a new PC running Windows 10, it will come with a digital license preinstalled. You can also link your Microsoft account to the digital license on your new PC.



  • If you bought a copy of Windows 10 from an authorized retailer, you will receive a product key that you can use to activate Windows 10. After activation, you will also get a digital license that you can link to your Microsoft account.



  • If you bought a digital copy of Windows 10 from an authorized retailer or from the Microsoft Store app, you will receive an email confirmation with a product key that you can use to activate Windows 10. After activation, you will also get a digital license that is automatically linked to your Microsoft account.



  • If you are a Windows Insider and upgraded to the newest Windows 10 Insider Preview build on an eligible device that was running an activated earlier version of Windows 10 and Windows 10 Preview, you will get a digital license for Windows 10 on that device.



How to check your activation status and link your Microsoft account?




To check your activation status and link your Microsoft account to your digital license, follow these steps:


  • Select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & Security > Activation.



  • On the Activation page, you will see your activation status and whether your Microsoft account is linked to your digital license. If your device is activated and your account is not linked, select Add an account and sign in with your Microsoft account.



  • If your device is not activated, you will see an error message explaining the failure. You might need to enter a product key or purchase a Windows 10 digital license to activate your device.



How to reactivate Windows 10 after a hardware change?




If you make a significant hardware change to your device, such as replacing the motherboard, you might need to reactivate Windows 10. To do this, you need to have a digital license linked to your Microsoft account before the hardware change. Then, follow these steps:


  • Select the Start button, then select Settings > Update & Security > Activation.



  • On the Activation page, select Troubleshoot. You might be asked to enter your Microsoft account credentials.



  • The Activation troubleshooter will try to detect the cause of the activation problem and fix it. If it can't activate your device online, it will give you the option to activate by phone.



  • If the troubleshooter can't fix the problem, or if you don't see the Troubleshoot option, contact Microsoft support for assistance.
