You can use windows without a license - there's a watermark and you can't set the wallpaper, but it's functional.

You can do so, there will just be the watermark and you can't change the UI colors. 
 

If you need a key, just get a $7 one off eBay or something, they're usually keys resold from enterprise accounts, aren't supposed to be resold but they are legit windows keys.

All i can find on ebay are w10 disks, keys are nowhere to be found,

there's a difference between 'legal' and 'breaking EULA'.

 

you're doing nothing illegal with those shady $7 g2a / kinguin / ... keys, they just most defenately dont follow microsoft EULA... but most they can do to you for that is deactivate it, which i dont think they are bothered with at all, seeing how many of these keys make the rounds...

 

a sneaky sidenote you can also do, is buy a windows vista to windows 7 upgrade key, they'll activate win10 too, as well as a win7 key, a win8/8.1 key, and the in betweensy upgrade keys.

You want 100% legit? Tou pay full price, period.

Unless you're an actively enrolled student there is no "cheap or free" methods.
