How to Make Trial Version Games Into Full Games

Whether you like hidden objects, puzzles, time management or other types of computer games, there are places online that offer one-hour trial versions of new games every day. These games usually work exactly like the full versions of the games, except they stop working in 60 minutes. This is usually enough time to get a feel for the game and decide whether you want to keep playing. Once you find a game you want to continue, purchase the full version of the game and install it on your computer.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click the game icon on your computer desktop. If your 60-minute trial is not used up, you can either play the game or purchase the full version. If your trial is up, you will have to buy the full game to continue.

  2. 2

    Click the "Buy" button on the game offer. You will be taken to the game's online page. Fill out your personal information required for game purchase, including your name, e-mail address and credit card information. Click the "Send" or "Finish" button to complete the sale.

  3. 3

    Go to your e-mail inbox. The game vendor will have sent you an e-mail that includes a code needed to activate your full version of the game. Open this e-mail and scroll down until you find the activation code.

  4. 4

    Copy the code by holding down the left mouse button and scrolling over the code numbers and letters to highlight them. Click the right mouse button and select "Copy" from the popup menu.

  5. 5

    Go back to the game on your desktop. Place your cursor in the space provided for the activation code. Click the right mouse button and select "Paste" from the popup menu.

  6. 6

    Click the "Send" or "OK" button to complete your game activation. The one-hour lock will be removed from the game, allowing you to play your full game indefinitely.
