Retrieve your Windows Product Key without extra software


New Member
I tried a powershell prompt, then ran the same prompt as an administrator. However, neither of them displayed my key. I'm running the most recent version of Windows 10.

It appears that Neemobeer's command works for some people, but only cursedboy's command works for others.


This quick tutorial shows you how to retrieve your Windows product key from a working system. This is helpful in cases where your device doesn't have a sticker.

  • Open powershell (Press the Windows Key, then type powershell)
  • Type the following command
View attachment 31890

The output will be your 25 character Windows product key in the form XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

This should work on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and 10

It's working thanks in Windows 10.
