  22. Just like me, not a master of the computer, I believe many of us may get stuck with the computer problem. Take this question for example, based on my previous experience, I think you have to get a product key to activate your Windows 10 key. Just go to the site http://www.MsKeyHome.com/ and place your order to buy one. When you pay for it successfully, the genuine product key will be sent to you timely. You can activate your Windows 10 key in several minutes.
