  1. Finding and COPYING Bitlocker recovery key in Windows 10 Professional


    I have been informed that I need a bios firmware update on my HP PC running W10Pro. Part of the update process warns me that I should have a backup of the Bitlocker key. But when I go to Microsoft's unbelievably unhelpful "help" site, all I'm told is that I need to log into my Microsoft account on another device which I did. But that's all the help Microsoft could provide and there is no mention or reference to the Bitlocker key in my account and all a search does is refer me to the same useless help page on Microsoft. So ... I'm simply trying to locate the key and copy it in case it's needed in the firmware update. Because, as well all know, these updates have a history of causing major problems.


    Thank you.

    :)
