Windows 10: How do I find my Windows 10 product key?

    How do I find my Windows 10 product key?


    Hello,

    Just upgraded my laptop from Windows 10 Home edition to Windows 10 Pro.
    Process went smoothly. Nowhere in the process was I ever shown my new product key.

    I have done Google searches but seem to only find products I can download to discover my key. I rather not install a product.
    Is there a way to discover what my product key is?

    Thanks in advance

    If you upgraded from MS Store, you have a digital licence. You can reinstall on same hardware at any time without a key.

    Natively it's not possible.....as you found out there are some 3rd party software that does that and does it quite well. Belarc is highly recommended. It will show you a lot, very informative piece of software.

    I know you don't want to use an app, but I can recommend Superfly's "ShowKey Plus" - ShowKeyPlus - Windows 10 Forums

    This will not help because OP must have been upgraded digitally, as OP never entered a key. It will only return a generic key.

    Same goes for showkeyplus.

    In a Command Prompt (Admin) or Powershell (Admin) run:
    slmgr /dlv

    If the partial product key shown in the results is 3V66T then your full product key is:
    VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T
