Microsoft has finally made Windows 11 product keys available for purchase

Windows 11 has been available for nearly a year, but it is still not officially accessible to purchase as a digital product key from Microsoft. That has now finally changed.

According to PCMag, Microsoft now sells Windows 11 Home and Windows 11 Pro product keys through the Microsoft Store. The rates are the same as in Windows 10: Home is $139.00, while Pro is $199.99. Previously, the only official option to get a copy of Windows 11 was on a USB drive. Even though many PCs include a Windows product key, the ability to purchase one is useful for persons who build their own computers or anyone who uses Windows in a virtual machine.

Microsoft did not sell Windows 11 product keys, but you could execute a fresh install using a Windows 10 product key. The similar thing happened in the early days of Windows 10, when many individuals installed it successfully using keys intended for Windows 7, 8, or 8.1. According to reports, Windows 7 keys can still be used to activate Windows 11.

Microsoft is eager to point out on the product sites that you still need a PC that fulfils the Windows 11 minimum system requirements. Some of the most stringent criteria can be avoided, but older computers may encounter issues. In addition, unlike Windows 10, there is no 32-bit version of Windows 11.

Despite the fact that you may technically buy a key to activate Windows 11 from Microsoft — a Windows 10 key — the new store pages make it obvious that you won’t have any problems with the latest operating system.
