    I got it, but why does it not show my original key anymore?
    The key is only validated now during installation to grant you a digital licence. It is actually safer as anybody accessing your pc cannot easily "steal" your key and use it elsewhere. Nothing to worry about.

    It seems you upgraded from a VL install to get this default key initially : Windows 10 Pro VL-MAK - QJNXR-7D97Q-K7WH4-RYWQ8-6MT6Y ... that key is no longer supported - thus Windows changed it to the Pro Retail default key viz. -3V66T
