Many computers have stickers with the Windows key printed on them and the install discs have keys printed on the packing, but what happens if you lose the pc sticker or you aren't sure which install dvd belongs to which computer if you have more than one?

Yes there are other ways and apps to reveal your Windows key but this guide focuses on a very easy way to display your key.

The app we are looking at is called "WindowsKeyViewer" and is a tiny, free, and portable app you can download HERE. Download it to somewhere you can find later, suggest the desktop and it will create an icon like this.

Double click the new icon and that's all there is to it. Below are some samples of the results for different systems. Please note the keys shown below are samples and not usable keys.

The copy button will allow you to copy the key to the clipboard for pasting elsewhere.

Give this great little app a try, it's bound to please.
