How to register Windows?
In our previous articles we have already told how to activate Windows XP and how to activate Windows 7. But besides activation, Microsoft also has a registration function. In this article we will explain why it is needed and how Windows can be registered.
It is necessary to immediately clarify that registration is not the same as activation, and it is not mandatory. Activation is needed to check if you have a licensed copy of Windows. And registration simply gives you the opportunity to receive from Microsoft useful information, news and links to download support programs. In exchange, you provide the company with your email address.
To register Windows 7, just go and click the "Register" button. A window will appear in which you will be prompted to enter your Hotmail, Messenger or Xbox LIVE account details - email address and password.
If you were registered in due time according to instructions from our article How to register in Windows Live, this account will also work.And if you do not have any of the accounts listed, click the "Register" link at the bottom of the login page and create a new account, after which you can return to the Windows registration procedure.
After entering your details, click the "Login" button. The page will reload and a message “Thank you for registration” will appear, and soon a welcome letter will be sent to your email address. In the future, newsletters will be sent regularly, but if you get tired of them, you can easily unsubscribe from them at the link below the letter.
You can register Windows 8 in exactly the same way.
