Ways To Find Your Windows 10 Product Key

1. Using Command Prompt

  1. To find your product key open the command prompt. Just type cmd on the Windows search bar. Then right-click and click on ‘Run As Administrator.
  2. Once open, copy and type in the following command and then hit the Enter key:


microsoft product key

3. Then you’ll see the 25 – digit product key.

Note: This method might not work on all computers. It will only work on computers where windows are installed. If you bought your computer and the Windows has already been installed product key is stored in your computer’s BIOS or UEFI firmware. That’s the time you can use the cmd method to retrieve the product key. If you installed your Windows on a different product key (if you have a digital license)  then it won’t work on the current key that you’ve used to install on your computer.

But you can still find your Windows 10 Product Key by using the Windows Registry Method.

2. Using The Windows Registry Method

  1. Open the notepad by typing in on the Windows Search bar.
  2. Copy and paste this code into Notepad

3. Then, click on “File” and click “Save As.”

4.  In File Explorer, click on the dropdown button and select “All Files” and type in the file name that is easier to remember. And have its file extension as .vbs (for example windows product key.vbs).

5.  Once you’ve entered the filename just click on save.

6.  Click on the Save File and a pop-up window will appear with the product key.

Note: You may search this method on the web, but it doesn’t give the real usable key on the latest version of Windows 10. If you encounter problems by using the Windows Registry you may opt to use the method we did above.
