Windows 7 is being used by millions of users throughout the world. But most of them still don’t know how to activate Windows 7 properly. If you are one of them then here is the perfect guide that will help you to solve that problem.
The method which I share will work 100% fine and are way too easy to apply. This guide is for both who have purchased the license key and for those who don’t have a key. In bonus, I will provide you with free keys for all versions that are genuine.
What Is Windows 7
Windows 7 is the operating system for personal computers that is developed by Microsoft. This Windows was announced in the year of 2009 and was released in Oct 2009. It is a mixture of Windows XP and Windows Vista.
This is the reason why it got too much fame from all around the world and people loved this.
It is 2020 now and people are loving it and consider it as their favourite Operating System. The layout is too simple and user-friendly and the first time Microsoft announces transparency effect.
But sadly Microsoft announces that they are not going to update this OS after 14 January 2020.
Since this is the best OS this doesn’t mean it is free, but it costs you money if you want to use it. When you buy this Windows from Microsoft they will give you 14-digits code. This is called your license key or the product key that we used to activate Windows 7.
How To Activate Windows 7
Now there are two methods which we are going to discuss. The first method is for those who already have a key or purchased license from Microsoft.
And the second method is only for those not having a key. So, if you already have a license key then just read the first method but if you wanted to get a free key of Bonus that I mentioned earlier than keep reading this article.
Method 1: Activate Windows 7 Using License Key
Ok, so first let’s talk about the first method:
- First, we need to open Start Menu from the Taskbar or simply press the Windows Logo key.
- Now from here right-click on Computer and then open Properties.
- After this now scroll down and click on the Activate Windows now.
- Now make sure you are connected to the internet because this method requires the internet. When it detects you have internet this will ask Activate Windows online now.
- After clicking on Activate Windows you will be asked for Administration Password just enter that and click the Next button.
- At this time you will see the small Windows asking to enter that key so just copy and paste that key you get from Microsoft and click Next.

That’s it now simply close all Windows and then right-click on My Computer and then scroll down to see Windows Status. Tadaaa! it is now activated and this is the only way that you can use.
Method 2: Activate Windows 7 Without Key
Don’t you have a key? Don’t have money to buy one? Don’t worry then :D. Because this method is only for those who don’t own a key. So, in this guide, we will use a tool called Windows 7 Loader.
This tool is also developed by Team Daz and make it free for everyone. It supports all the editions and the versions including Professional, Ultimate, Home, Basic, etc. Even though this supports both x32-bit and x64-bit architecture as well. The tool is 100% virus-free and as it is developed by Team Daz we don’t even have to worry about it.
Even though Windows 7 Loader gives you a genuine license which lasts for the rest of life. It allows you to enter your own key if you have one. Also, you can generate keys for free using this Windows Loader. There are many other cool features you get when you use it by yourself.
Ok, so let’s check out how we can activate Windows with Windows 7 Loader:
1. First, we need to download this tool by following this link: Windows 7 Activator Download
2. Now simply disable Windows Defender or any 3rd-Party Antivirus if you are using. You can follow the below steps to disable Windows Defender.
Open Start Menu > Click on Control Panel > Now select Tools and then click on Options > From the menu choose Administrator > now just uncheck Use This Program > After this click Save and then Close all the Windows and Restart your computer.
3. After this now you need to open that folder where you downloaded Windows 7 Loader. Now using any tool like WinRar, or 7Zip just extract the zip file.
4. It will create a folder there so open it and right-click on Windows 7 Loader.exe and click on Run as Administrator.
5. The program will be opened because it is portable and doesn’t aks for installation. So, here you see many options don’t touch any of them.
6. Stay in the Installation menu and then you see the OS information now simply click on the Install button. It will load some files and see the green progress bar.
That’s it the program will be completed in just a few seconds and you see success message there. Now just restart your computer and then right-click on My Computer and click on Properties. Here you can see the Windows activation status which is activated.

The tool which I shared above works perfectly fine for all the editions. It automatically detects which build or which edition you are using. Even though the feature which I love the most is its genuine activation. This means now with the help of this Loader you can simply get an original license from Microsoft.
