Regardless of which version of Windows you are using (Home, Pro, Corporate or others), you can activate it in various ways, even with a key from another version. Among the activation methods there are both legal — with the purchase of a key — and illegal methods. To use illegal activation methods or not — this choice always remains on the conscience of the user.
Activating Windows 10 via the command line
A very simple activation method is activation via the command line. This will require literally a couple of commands, but first you need to open it:
press the Win+R key combination to open the "Run" window;
make sure that the window that opens is running as an administrator. Enter the cmd command in the input line. You can also open the command prompt via the Start menu by finding the necessary application.;
the "Execute" window
Enter the cmd command in the window and click OK
confirm entering the command by pressing the "OK" key.
This way the command line will be opened. Follow these steps:
Enter the command slmgr.vbs -ipk xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx, where your license key from the installed version of Windows 10 will be entered instead of the x characters.
Activation via the command line
After entering the command, the digits of your license key should follow
Confirm entering the command.
Then enter slmgr.vbs -ato to perform key verification. After entering this command, the authenticity of the key will be verified, which will take some time.
Authentication on the command line

If the activation is successful, you will receive a notification about it. After that, you can close the command line.
