  1. Windows Product ID but Key is lost after Factory Reset, can i recover it?


    Hello everybody,


    lately i had to factory reset my machine, because of security issues. After that my Windows Pro License was lost. Thanks Microsoft. No not buying it again.


    Is there a way to recover the Windows Pro Product Key if i have a screenshot with the Product ID?


    I know, that no one is going to read this. Greed does not create communities, so Microsoft will never achieve anything like a "community". This Editor even marks the word Microsoft with a red line as if it was wrong.


    Anyways every bit of help will be appreciated.




    P.S.: Word of advice, switch to Linux. As soon as possible. You know what happened with the Internet Explorer. You know what happened with all your fancy software running on XP in every hospital near you. You know what happened to Bing ... So you sure know what will happen, as soon as someone finds out where all your data goes and why world economy can be manipulated by a simple proxy in the US. Yes Mark Monitor, i am staring at you.

    :)

    How to recover lost Microsoft Office 2013 Product Key after Windows 10 Reset PC

    Although the Windows Lost Product Key question has been asked before, this is slightly different.
    I did 'Reset this PC' from Windows 10 Recovery without taking a backup of the system or files. All my files were safe but the Licensed Microsoft Office 2013 was removed. I have unfortunately misplaced the MS Office 2013 Student and Home product box. I have also checked with Windows Helpdesk if any of my emails are associated with the MS Office and the Microsoft Account; sadly, none are.

    I read that that the 'Reset' cleans the registry and removes the apps. I am thinking of two ways to try and find the key

    1. Use all the Free Key finders around then buy a paid one if they don't work
    2. Use Recuva or a similar tool to try and recover the deleted old Windows Registry files

    Has anyone faced a similar issue or can you think of an alternate way to try and get the Key?
