You can activate Windows 10 in different ways and each way is defined by the installation method. Luckily, the Microsoft Support team have created a page which explains how to activate Windows 10 with all the installation methods used.

Access the page using the following link, then scroll to the bottom and click on the option that corresponds to your installation: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/activation-in-windows-10

As a Windows 10 user, search for the additional information here: https://articles.informer.com/tag/windows-10/
