As its name suggests, Windows Product Key Viewer is a program that finds and lets you view the Windows operating system's product key on your PC. It also shows additional operating system details that you can copy, print, or export to a file.
Light and simple
This simple program is excellent to have around just in case. It’s small and straightforward, deserving a place on anybody’s tool belt.
This key finder program supports all versions of Windows OS, both 32-bit and 64-bit. It’s a free utility and takes only around 500kb of space, making it ideal for carrying around on a flash drive. The program is safe, too, since you don’t even have to install it.
Apart from the CD key, this program will display system information, including the full Windows version, product ID, installation date and time, service packs, registered user, current uptime, and VMWare.
Although the number of information sounds overwhelming, the way Windows Product Key Viewer displays them isn’t cluttered. It’s quite neat, making it easy to locate relevant information.
Once you extract relevant data, you can save it to a text file, copy the code for your desired purpose, or print it for later use. Unfortunately, though, you can’t print only the key; you’ll need to print everything the program pulls up.
The interface has an old-fashioned look of original Windows programs no matter which system you run it on, but it’s well-organized and easy to use. All you need to do is launch it, and it’ll open a window with relevant information stored.
Where can you run this program?
This program is compatible and will work on all versions of Windows, all the way up to the latest Windows 10 version.
Is there a better alternative?
No, at least not for Windows. Regarding alternatives, Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is popular but not safe, APKF Product Key Finder works on Mac too, and Recover Keys has somewhat broader applications.
While this program does not have any other functions and features an outdated design, it works as intended and performs its primary function well. It’s the perfect example of a handy tool to have around when you need it.
Should you download it?
Yes, if you’re a Windows user. Even if you don’t immediately need it, you can’t go wrong with having such a tool on hand.
