    Extract Office 2013 key from backup


    After doing a clean install of Windows 10 on my PC I just realized I forgot to find out what my Product Key for Office 2013 Professional Plus is. I do have a Backup though (Disk Image I made using the old standard Windows backup method). Is there any way to find out what my key is using the backup?

    Hi tin.
    I think, when you first installed O2013, you were required to register it with your MS account, online. If you go back to that site and login, you will be able to install it that way, and the key will be there automatically. Go to here, sign in, do the install that way. If your Office was associated with your MS account, it'll all be there for you.

    Hope that helps!

    I only have Office Home & Student 2007.

    Have a look at this tutorial by Microsoft.....................
    Find your Office product key after installation
    https://support.office.com/en-us/art...3-f41e6cc31c5a

    Scroll down to ......Find the product key associated with activated installations linked to your Microsoft account.
    Follow the instructions from there.

    I do not have an activated copy of office installed on my PC so this method does not help me unfortunately.
