Why update Microsoft software?

It’s important to regularly update your software, even though it may seem tiresome. Apple routinely delivers free software updates for products like Mac, iPhone and iPad to add features and squash bugs.

But Microsoft typically charges for its big updates. The software giant usually makes users pay for new versions of its Windows operating system and its professional productivity software, such as Microsoft Office.

Those costs can add up, but it certainly doesn’t pay to delay updates to your Microsoft software. Keeping everything up-to-date ensures you get the most exciting new features. And CDKeylord’s low prices make regular upgrades even more appealing.

When you run the latest versions of Microsoft’s operating systems and/or productivity software, you can use new features that streamline everyday tasks. That, in turn, translates into a productivity boost. Upgrading to the latest versions also cuts down on compatibility problems.

Update software for better security

One of the main reasons to update Microsoft software is to improve your online security. In fact, this may be even more important than taking advantage of the software’s latest, greatest features.

Newer versions of software, including Microsoft’s, almost always prove more secure than older versions. Practically every new software release includes patches and upgrades that fix nasty security problems lurking in previous versions.

Also, if you put off updating your software, you leave yourself vulnerable to another inevitability. Eventually, Microsoft will stop supporting the old version(s) you’re running.

How to purchase your key and activate your new software

CDKeylord’s purchase and activation process is straightforward and simple. On the software activation key purchase page for the product you want, just click the Buy Now button. Then simply sign up quickly for your free CDKeylord account (or log in if you’re a repeat customer). After you complete your purchase, you will receive your software activation link via email.

After you follow the link and receive an OEM product key at the email address you entered during registration, go to Windows 10 Settings. Just click Start > Settings > System > About the program > Change product key, and then enter your product key.

After you activate the OEM key, you should see the following message on the Activation page: “Windows is activated with a digital license linked to your Microsoft account.”

Activate your software on Microsoft’s site

Installing and activating new software via Microsoft is similarly straightforward. For example, let’s say you want to activate a Microsoft Office package. Just follow these steps:

  1. Go to the official Microsoft page for the Office software.
  2. Enter your Microsoft credentials (or create a profile if you do not already have a Microsoft account).
  3. Enter the purchased product key in the appropriate field (from the CDKeylord email you received after your purchase).
  4. After selecting your language and region, click Next to complete the activation.
  5. Now you can install Microsoft Office on your PC.
Activating your new software is a straightforward process, too.

Details about your purchase

While there’s no question CDKeylord offers great deals, please note that these Microsoft software licenses are nontransferable. The software keys are valid for a single activation on a single computer (except where two PCs are noted). If you switch to another computer in less than a year, you must buy another license to keep using the software.

Still, considering these deep discounts off CDKeylord’s already low prices, these restrictions shouldn’t get in the way of making a crucial upgrade. To grab your 30% discount, shop at CDKeylord.com and enter the code CULT at checkout.
