Most of us have a Windows PC with us. But not all of us Windows users can afford to pay for the Windows product key for the lifetime activation of Windows. Yes, we can still use Windows without activating it, but we cannot access some of the features like “personalization” when Windows is not activated. There is also a message which says our Windows has not been activated, always in the bottom right corner of the screen. That message not only hinders our day-to-day experience but also always reminds us about not being able to buy a product key.
Many users, therefore, search for free and genuine methods to activate Windows once and for all. There are many articles on the internet that claim to provide a genuine and free method. Those methods might activate Windows for a limited time and also might flood your PC with viruses. Today, in this article, we are about to share with you the best method to activate Windows for free for a lifetime. This method is easy to follow and is also virus free.

You will now be promoted to a window. Press Yes
You will now see a screen as mentioned below. It has three activation options: HWID (permanent activation), KMS38 (2038 years), and Online KMS (180 days). Though the first and second options are both permanent in a sense, we will select the first option for now.

As mentioned in the green highlighted text, press 1 from your keyboard. Within the moment after pressing 1 your activation process begins. The scripts perform some checks regarding OS to the internet connection key. After a minute, you will see your Windows is activated successfully.
