    Windows 10 KMS activation expires soon, what will happen??


    Hello, so I'm coming with an important question.

    So I activated my Windows 10 with a KMS key, now windows keeps informating me to active windows.

    What will happen if I don't active windows, will my windows be blocked or will the watermark pop up and some options will not be available?

    Windows Version 1903

    :)

    kms license expiring - what to do and what will happen?

    A couple of weeks ago, my laptop (windows 10 professional) started to give me a pop-up message that I have not seen in the 6 months that I've had it. "Your Windows License is Expiring Soon".

    I did some digging around using slmgr and apparently the license on this Windows 10 expires in 2 days on April 20th. Now I have no experience with anything like this so I don't know what it means, what will happen on the 20th or what to do about it.

    Under the activation tab in settings, it says, "Windows is activated using your organization's activation service". I bought this laptop used back in October of last year (2016) and it has been great. So over the last week or so, I guess I have figured out that this laptop must have a KMS license that I don't know anything about. I checked around online using Google, etc...and all I can find is something about a slmgr rearm count which I looked at and mine said 1001 so I tried that, and it dropped down to 1000 but nothing changed and I still get the warning and the date of the 20th still shows up.

    So my questions are: 1. What can I or should I do about this? and 2. What will happen on the 20th when it expires?

    Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Your Windows licence will expire soon. You need to activate Windows in Settings.

    Hello Paula,

    To resolve the issue with the error message Your Windows license will expire soon. You need to activate Windows in Settings,
    we suggest checking Rakesh's post on this
    link
    . If your Operating System is already Window 10, and you'll only updating your Operating System there's no fee for that. To ensure that your license has no issue, we suggest following the steps provided by Rakesh's on his post.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

    kms license expiring - what to do and what will happen?

    It could have, at one time, been an actual legal KMS activation by that companies KMS server. Then sold without removing the company installed OS before hand. Happens when a company goes belly up and the IT guy (if there is one) has no more interest in what's going on. Without access to that companies KMS server activation times out and fails to reactivate. Nothing shady about it other than it shouldn't have been sold without wiping the OS first. They get lazy and just do a reset.

    If it was a cheat, we likely wouldn't be having this conversation as it would still be illegally activated. Unless your antivirus actually did flag something already and quarantine it. *Wink
