About Windows 11
Jerry Nixon, a senior software development engineer at Microsoft, stated that version 10 is the last one of Windows at the Ignite conference 2015. What he said convinced many that doing an upgrade is a wise decision at that time. Six years passed by, it is already 2021, Microsoft is going to issue the stable release of Windows 11 after publishing the insider preview build. What’s going on? Is it a business trick? I don’t know for sure but I think a complimentary upgrade offer for a newer version of Windows is quite attractive. However please be noted that hardware specification for the new Windows is much higher than the old one. So the first thing you need to do is checking if your machine can handle it or not. Just go here to check out the minimum system requirements.
Experience on Windows 11
new ui on windows 11
I have used Windows 11 on my desktop for two weeks. It seems they created a completely new user interface that is almost similar to Mac OS for version 10 then named it 11. We have centered taskbar items, new system icons and the start menu is also centered on the screen. The list of menu options that appeared in the context menu has changed compared to the previous version. The interface of Windows apps has been refreshed and the new layout makes it attractive. The new feature which has garnered the most media attention perhaps is the ability to run android apps on Windows. It means you can play your favorite mobile games on your PC without an additional emulator. But the pity is that I don’t see this feature in the current build so I haven’t had a chance to try it.
Should you upgrade your Windows to version 11
In general, Windows 11 includes many changes in the user interface. Its new features are cool but not ready, thus, they are not attractive enough to most Windows 10 users, especially those who need a stable system. I think you should wait for the major release before deciding whether to use it. However, if you just want to try the new Windows, just go for it, using a virtual machine is recommended in this case. You can get the iso file of Windows 11 here.
Activate Windows 11 using free KMS client key
The steps are completely similar to what I showed you in step-by-step instructions on how to activate Windows 10 for free, except that I do it on Windows 11 this time.
Legal way to use Windows 11 for FREE
Method 1: Manual activation
Time needed: 1 minute.
Run KMS commands on the cmd program.
Click on the start button, search for “cmd” then run it with admin rights.
Use the command “slmgr /ipk kmsclientkey” to install a license key (kmsclientkey is the activation key that corresponds to your Windows edition).The following is the list of Windows 11 Volume license keys.Home: TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99Home N: 3KHY7-WNT83-DGQKR-F7HPR-844BMHome Single Language: 7HNRX-D7KGG-3K4RQ-4WPJ4-YTDFHHome Country Specific: PVMJN-6DFY6-9CCP6-7BKTT-D3WVRProfessional: W269N-WFGWX-YVC9B-4J6C9-T83GXProfessional N: MH37W-N47XK-V7XM9-C7227-GCQG9Education: NW6C2-QMPVW-D7KKK-3GKT6-VCFB2Education N: 2WH4N-8QGBV-H22JP-CT43Q-MDWWJEnterprise: NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43Enterprise N: DPH2V-TTNVB-4X9Q3-TJR4H-KHJW4*Note*: You need to hit [Enter] key to execute commands.
Use the command “slmgr /skms s8.uk.to” to connect to my KMS server.
The last step is to activate your Windows using the command “slmgr /ato”.If you see the error 0x80070005, it means the server is busy. Please try the command “ato” again until you succeed.
your windows is activated successfully
Method 2: Using a batch file
This one is not recommended anymore due to the new update of Microsoft.
Step 1: Copy the code below into a new text document.

Right-click on the Desktop screen then create a new text document.
create new text file on windows 11
Step 2: Paste the code into the text file. Then save it as a batch file with cmd extension and a name you want. Here I named it “1click.cmd”.
copy code into the text file then save itsave text file as batch script
Step 3: Right click on the batch file then run it as administrator.
run the batch script as admin
Please wait a minute. You will see the line “Product activated successfully”. It means the activation process is completed.
windows is activated successfully using batch script
*Note*: If you see three times the same error message saying that the connection to the KMS server was unsuccessful, please read this post.
Finally check the activation status again.
windows 11 is activated successfully
