    Win 10 Product Key via Elevated CMD


    I dug up an information which will retrieve the Win 10 Product Key using Elevated Command Prompt.............

    wmic path softwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey

    I tried it and it did produce a product key on each of my computers.

    What I do not know is if the key is correct.
    I mean is it for end user for whatever reasons, or is it for computer manufacturers for mass production ?

    Would our guru members confirm or debunk this ?

    Suggest you take a look at Superfly's app. It's kinda been the de facto "get Key" app for some time.

    I am 75 years old and my eyesight is no longer as effective. Reading is no longer my favourite thing.

    I'm just want to know if the command line is good for end user.

    Thank you.

    I ran your command line and ShowKeyPlus. They match as being the installed key and the OEM key from Dell. Hope that helps. TC :)

    To answer your specific question... yes, that commandline is good for end users.

    Hope this helps...
