Introduction

In this article we are explaining how to find the product key of installed applications in Windows 8. If you happen to lose your product key and you want to reinstall an application or an operating system like Microsoft Office, Windows 8 etc, you will need to find your unique product key, CD key, or serial number. The product key (Microsoft product) is a sequence of 25 letters and numbers divided into 5 groups that is used to activate your product.

Your operating system and application product key is stored in the registry but is encrypted and not readable, making finding it difficult. If you want to retrieve your product key then you must use a third party program. There are several programs that can help.
