If you have a genuine copy of Windows, you’ll have a license key. When purchasing a new or refurbished computer, they come preloaded with Windows 10. In addition, your new device comes embedded with the license already. The code is unique to every device that comes with Windows 10. If you have a genuine version, you can do updates.
If you’ve chosen a laptop without an OS, it’s a different story. However, you can still install Windows without the use of a key. However, this gives your version of Windows certain limitations. Things like setting your background wallpaper won’t be possible. All in all, your computer will still be usable without it, but it won’t be the best experience. See here how to activate Windows 10.
