    Can i still get a digital licence of windows 10 pro through insider program is it same as original windows? I am having windows 10 home but i want to run hyper v for emulators i can't pay 200 $ now. So now i have a unactivated windows 10 pro how do i activate it? And what are the issues if i didn't? I had a windows 10 home which came with the laptop(called oem i guess) can i get it back if something goes wrong?

    Nope, you can't activate with insider any longer
    Why would you want to activate, use it the way it is now, when you get cash Activate!

    nope, have been using unactivated Pro insider build for long time, you might miss customization options though :P

    It's just color profile etc and we can set desktop background from pictures directly right click and set background. That water mark is annoying.

    Are you using it in your laptop or virtual machine?

    there is a key that you put into the Windows store nd it updates to Windows 10 pro , so after that you can run virtual machines and emulators, you must actívate the hyper-v into the Windows features.

    I actually don't have a key which costs 200$. Wether there are any other ways for it? I am already having a windows 10 pro installed and running virtual machines. But the thing is windows didn't got activated because i don't have a valid key

    Any chance you're a student? Might be able to get an educational copy.

    I am a student but our college doesn't have any Microsoft service (like mail etc they use google instead), is it possible to get by dreamspark account (imagine account)?

    If you have a *.edu email address you may be able to.

    Even if you don't use MS services, your school may still have a system for discounted/free software. (e.g. my school district used Google for the rarely used student email and Classroom functionality but they still have MS and Adobe software available)
