The leaked build of Windows 11 OS lets you install the Windows 11 OS on your PC. We know, after the installation of the Windows 11 OS or after the upgradation of your OS to Windows 11, you need to activate the copy of Windows unless doing so, customizations like changing wallpaper and theme are being restricted to the users of the non-activated OS. If you are a Windows 10 user and you have a genuine copy of the Windows 10, and if you upgrade your PC to Windows 11 by keeping all the apps and files on your PC, there is no need of separate activation of the Windows 11 OS. Windows 11 copy will be activated automatically during installation.
In case you have done a clean installation of Windows 11 on on your PC by bypassing the TPM 2.0 error, you need to activate the Windows 11 separately. Until the activation, Windows 11 does not allow you to customize the Windows 11 OS. For this, a copy of the Windows 10/11 product key and the active internet connection are required. Having both of them, you can easily activate the Windows 11 successfully even before the official release of the Windows 11. Some users manage to activate and convert their Windows 11 Pro copy to Windows 11 Enterprise version by using the product key of the Windows 10 Enterprise. Some users also reported about the blockage of their associated Microsoft account just after activating the Windows 11 OS using the digital licensing method.
Now, lets see how to activate the Windows 11 copy even before launching the product officially using Windows 10 Product key.
