You probably received Windows 10 as a free upgrade, so everything was done automatically for you, and you didn’t have to worry about any product keys, activation steps and stuff like that. But if you want to know the product key of your copy of Windows 10 just in case, I’m going to show you how to easily find it.

Where is my Windows 10 product key?

The Windows Product key is actually not easy to find manually, because you’ll have to go through various registry scripts. So, not only that you’ll waste your time, you can also damage something in the registry, and there will be trouble.

But thankfully, there’s much easier solution. You can use some key-finder tools which will show you your product key in seconds.

How to locate your Windows 10 product key with ProduKey

I personally recommend NerSoft’s ProduKey, because it’s extremely simple tool to use and it will show you product keys of other software as well, not just your system. Click here and download ProduKey for free and it will immediately show you your product key.

You don’t even have to install it, just extract the .rar file and open the tool. Another good thing is that this tiny program doesn’t load your computer with junk promotional software and it doesn’t change your default search engine, like many programs do.

Speaking of which, if you want to change your default search engine  in Microsoft Edge, check out this article.

As I said, using this software is very easy. Just open it and it will show you the name of the software, it’s Product ID and most importantly it’s Product Key. If you double click on the name of any listed software, it will show you even more detailed info, and you can easily copy product key and everything else wherever you want.

I know you’re skeptical about using a third-party software while performing a system-related task. It’s okay, I was skeptical too. But you don’t have to worry about ProduKey, because it’s completely safe and it won’t damage your computer with malicious content. At the end of the day, it’s much more simple than going through complicated registry paths by yourself.

Other methods to find your Windows Product Key

Additionally, you can retrieve your Windows 10 Product Key from your hardware manufacturer or from Microsoft Support.

If you bought a new computer running Windows, then the product key is preinstalled on it. Contact your hardware manufacturer for more information.

Also, if you purchased a digital copy of Windows 10 directly from Microsoft’s website, then you should have it in your confirmation email. If you deleted that email, contact Microsoft support to get more information about the respective digital license.
