This time instead of the 25-key product code which the users are used to Microsoft has provided a “digital entitlement”. This is one of the ways which Microsoft has introduced to activate Windows 10 on the PC. In the past people were confused about how to get their copy of Windows 10 but Microsoft has finally got a way to do it.
