Each key belongs to a global region, allowing you to activate it in different countries.
How do I place an order to purchase a Windows 10 or Windows 11 key?
To purchase keys in the store, you must first register a new profile (or log in to an existing profile). To do this, you need to go to the site (you can use one of the links above) and then click on the “Sign Up” button.
In addition, the user can also subscribe to the newsletter about current promotions. To complete the registration, click on the “Register” button (below the form).
There is another way to complete your purchase quickly. You can use a third-party Google, Twitch, or YouTube profile to log into your account. To do this, click on the service icon below the registration form.
Now you must return to the page of the product you want to purchase. You can add it to your cart (if you want to continue shopping) or proceed directly to checkout (you must click the “Buy Now” button).
A new page will appear asking you to enter your current email address. It is also important not to forget to activate the promotional code. To do this, enter the ‘Promotional Code’ field VG30 and click the “Apply” button.
A 30% discount must be activated, which will apply to all promotional items in the cart. To go to the next page, click on the ‘Submit Order’ button.
At this stage you must select a payment method. For your convenience, there are several payment services and systems available for you to choose from, including cards, PayPal and more.
It is worth noting that when you choose to pay by card, you must first remove the limits for online purchases in your bank account settings.
Once you have completed all the fields to place an order and complete the transaction, the key will be available within 3-5 minutes.
What to do if the Windows 10 or Windows 11 key has not arrived after payment?
Many users mistakenly look for the key in their email. It is worth noting right away that you will receive a letter with an electronic check. However, the key itself must be looked for in the profile on the site.
To do this, you need to open your account settings and select the “User Center” section.
Then go to the “My Purchased Orders” field, where all purchased and previously added items to the cart are located.
To open the page with the key, click on the “View Keys/Codes” field. Copy the key and keep it in a safe place for later activation.
How do I activate a Windows 10 or Windows 11 key?
You can activate the key not only during the installation of the operating system, but also afterwards. It is noteworthy that you must use the official version of Windows 10 or Windows 11, downloaded from the Microsoft website.
Go to the Start menu and select Settings.
Then “System”, then scroll through the list and find the “About the program” field.
In this menu, click on the clickable text “Change the product key or update the Windows system” and then on “Change the product key”.
Copy your key (with the key combination Ctrl+C) and paste it into the empty field (with the key combination Ctrl+V) as shown in the screenshot.
Click “Next” and wait for the process to complete. If successful, you will see the following message: “Windows is activated.” Congratulations, you are now the owner of an activated version of the operating system with all the goodies it contains.
To activate Microsoft Office, go to the product page and enter the key in the field. Then indicate your preferred region and language.
How to upgrade from Windows 10 to Windows 11 for free?
If you have already activated Windows 10, but want to upgrade to a newer version of the operating system, you can do so completely free of charge.
To do this, make sure your system meets the minimum system requirements:
- Processor: 1 GHz or faster (two or more cores);
- RAM: 4 GB or more;
- Memory: 64 GB or more of free hard drive space;
- Video card: DirectX 12 compatible with WDDM 2.0 driver.
Then go to Update Center – open Settings and then click on the Update & Security menu.
Download Windows 11 – click “Download and Install”. Wait for the download to complete and follow further instructions. Windows 11 will be installed automatically.
Features of licensed versions of Windows 10 and Windows 11 after activation:
- The main advantage of licensed Windows is the ability to always download official updates from Microsoft. Thus, you can receive current updates, in which developers can not only make certain improvements to the system, but also significantly expand its functionality. In addition, the optimization of new programs or games may also depend on the operating system version;
- That same annoying window that used to remind you of the requirement to activate the operating system will disappear forever. Now it will be more convenient to watch movies, play video games and read text;
- A clear conscience and increased data security.
It is important to note that if you change your PC or buy a new motherboard after activating Windows 10, you will need to contact official Microsoft support to continue using the lifetime license.
