Sites to buy Windows 10
As I told you at the beginning of the guide, Windows 10 can be bought on the official Microsoft store in the form of a pendrive with the ISO image of the operating system or by downloading the latter (in both cases the product key of the copy of license purchase) but also on third-party online stores which, unlike the website of the Remdondiana company, also offer the opportunity to take home the package with the operating system installation DVD and the license key or to receive the product key only via email or other telematic means.
However, it should be borne in mind that, if on the Microsoft home store there is no type of risk during the purchase phase, as regards the other online stores, particular attention must be paid to all sellers who try to "place" license at lower prices than necessary. In these cases, unless there are particular offers in progress, it could be dealing with codes that are not genuine or that in any case could prove to be non-functional as inserted by the Redmond company in its blacklist. For the rest ... good shopping!
Since Windows 10 is the latest operating system from Microsoft, it is currently possible to purchase it directly through the company's online store.
To buy your copy of Windows 10 through the Microsoft website you must therefore connect to the home page of the store, click on the item Windows on the left and select the link for the version you are interested in (Windows 10 Home or Windows 10 Pro), choose whether to receive the USB key at home with the operating system in cittàn (USB - city) and with the product key or whether to download the ISO file of the operating system (Download) always with the user license code attached and press the button Add to Cart.
Now check that the product placed in the cart is actually the one you want (otherwise click on the link Remove and repeat the above procedure from the beginning) then click on Complete transaction.
Then log in to the site with your Microsoft account, provide the shipping data and indicate the payment method you intend to use, put the check mark next to the entry relating to the acceptance of the conditions of sale and the information on the privacy of the company on the right and click on the button Buy it now.
Once this is done, the purchase will be finalized, you will immediately receive a confirmation email and, if you have chosen the pendrive with the operating system, you will have to wait for the goods to arrive at home (it should take a few days, do not worry). If, on the other hand, you have chosen to download the ISO file, you can immediately use it and the product key of your copy of Windows 10 will be provided to you immediately.
