There are a few ways you can still get Windows 10 for free, without using a pirated license: you can install Windows 10 with a 7 or 8 key, or install Windows without a key—it will work just fine, save for a small watermark reminding you to purchase a license.
Windows 10’s setup process now forces you to sign in with a Microsoft account. If you’d rather use a local user account, Microsoft says you should switch from Microsoft to a local user account afterward.
Whether you have coworkers, friends, or family in different time zones, keeping track of it all can take some effort. Windows lets you add multiple time zone clocks to the taskbar, making this much easier.
