Last week, I’ve installed the latest version of Windows – Windows 7 on at least four different machines and was asked by one of the new and rather forgetful users that if he were to forget the Windows 7 product key, how would he find/trace it out again. I took him to my laptop and showed him the way which I assumed almost everyone knew. For the benefit of those who don’t know it, here’s how you find/recover the Windows 7 product key.
Download WinGuggle, an extremely light portable freeware, unzip and run it.
Find Windows 7 Product Key
It will immediately display your Windows 7 product key, Microsoft Office product key (if you’ve installed MS Office) and Owner information. If you click on ‘Copy’, the product key will be copied to your clipboard. Clicking on Tools on the WinGuggle navbar will help you to edit OEM details of Windows 7 too.
