How do I register my Windows 8 copy online? Or do I have to? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've just registered all my Surface device, I am just wondering should I also register the copy of Windows 8 on my desktop PC? How to do that?

    Most questions i'm interested in might have two or more possible answers i know or i don't know. So please read question carefully before you try to answer, and explan your question detailedly before asking for help. 很多看起来简单的问题都存在多种可能性,如果您不能详细的解释,别人就不能正确判断出您所遭遇的实际状况,因而不能给出最适合的解决办法。在您没有给出详细信息的情况下,施助者只有张贴大量有可能有关的解决办法。而您可能没有耐心阅读所有这些东西,在这种情况下您就客观地形成了对施助者的伤害——除非“施助者”并没有用心去尝试帮助您。 同样地,当您尝试解答一个看起来“好像遇到过”的问题的时候,您也需要详细地阅读和理解这个问题。如果您不了解问题的细节,您可能会给出不相关的或者无助于解决当前问题的解答。

  • Hi,

    We cannot  register Windows 8.

    Regarding Windows 8,we just need to activate it on your desktop.

    Because Windows 8 is the operating system.

    But Surface is a hard device.We need to  register your Surface product for quicker access to technical support from Answer Desk, and to easily check the status of your warranty.

  • You should make sure your Windows is activated, if not, you could activate them through internet.

    You could check activation in Computer Propertise.
