So, we are going to teach you this simple method to check if our Windows 10 license is correctly activated.
How do I know that my license is activated?
As a general rule, this type of license it only needs to be activated once. However, it may be that, if we change some components of the computer, we need to activate it again.
There are several ways to check if the license is active correctly. It will be as simple as typing in the menu in the lower left corner “Setting”. Once inside, a range of options will appear and we will have to select “Update and Security“And then hit”Activation”, Which is one of the options in the menu that will open on the left.
So, this is where a message will appear telling us that the Windows 10 license works perfectly. However, in this way we navigate through various menus and it can be confusing, so we are going to show you this trick to know much faster the answer.
What is this trick?
We will have to go back to the menu in the lower left corner and write the word “run”. When we put it, a small window will open in which we will have to write the following three letters: “Cdm”.
Another way to get to this little menu is position the mouse cursor over the start button, right click and select the “Run” option.
Regardless of the way we got here, you may have noticed that typing “cdm” has opened up a rather strange black menu. Now what you will have to do is type the command slmgr.vbs / xpr and then hit the Enter key.
In case the Windows 10 license is correctly activated, a small message will open that will show us that the license is permanently active.
In case it is not activated or is a temporary license, the activation will expire on a certain date. Therefore, if you have the license deactivated, do not hesitate to activate it. Remember that you can transfer a Windows 10 license to another computer.
