  1. Product Key


    Hello, I have recently bought a new PC but it only had 250GB so I took my old PC and formatted the SSD. And now I have a buyer for my old PC so I decided to put the new SSD back in with a USB stick that has Windows 10 installed. I turned on the computer and I tried to set up windows but I couldn't find the product key so I clicked that I don't have one but that took me to a loop and back to the setup screen again. I do have a CD that came with the PC does that contain a product key or can I use the same key that is on my new PC?

    Kind regards
    Duncan Cardew

    :)

    Hi Megan,

    A product key is used when activating a software.
    To help us determine the appropriate troubleshooting steps that can resolve your concern, we'd like to ask the following questions:

    • What product are you trying to activate?
    • Are you looking for the product key to activate your Office application?
    • Which version of Office are you trying to activate? To check this, you can perform the steps posted on this
      link.
    • Are you looking for the product key to activate your Windows?

    We look forward to your response.

    Where is my Product Key if I want to re-install?


    Like davidhk said. But if you really want to see your windows key, I would suggest Belarc advisor. It will give you some useful information about your system, product keys of your software is among them (not only Microsoft, you will have listed most of your keys).
