how to Change windows 8 key

Posted: August 27, 2012 in Configuration, Windows 8

Hi there Folks,

Today i had looping around in my Windows 8 enterprise edition to find out how to change the serial key ( you will need this in case you had not activate your Windows 8 enterprise RTM when installing).


So let’s see how to do that.


First open the command prompt as Administrator

Second you will see a Windows asking you the seral key, put your serial key and choose activate

Easy right?! Now if you are in the begining the next question you would made would be “How i open CMD as administrator”, easy:


Go to the charms bar search for your app


Then Right click on the application to open the app bar

Select runing as administrator

And you are done.

    Does this also apply for an OEM version to be changed into a regular version?

    Darn stupid that one has to google how to do something as easy as changing the serial key, especially when I was not asked for one when I upgraded and it would fail the upgrade. Definitely a thumbs down for Microsoft and a big thumbs up for you. Thank you!

    In addition, Midrosoft is no more saying anything about Windows 8,
    though there has been an “(official) leak” on tthe topic.
    Farag and Srour said, “To this end, we have added a new component to Windows 8 called the “Desktop Activity
    Moderator,” which only runs on these new connected standby-capable platforms. In Windows 8, there is no “Start button,” but instead you have a Start screen. The code can then be cut’n’pasted back into the main development window. Therefore, users increasingly move to Windows 7 Needless to say it is faster, smarter and more responsive. I didn’t want to call Microsoft because I knew it would be a long process just getting to a real person.
