How To Find Windows 11 Product Key?

After the release of Windows 11, most laptop companies have started announcing laptops with Windows 11. When you purchase a Windows 11 license, it is easier to find the product key as it comes with the disk or the order receipt if bought digitally.

Some laptop manufacturers also provide the product key on the laptop in a sticker, but that’s not the case for most. When you have to clean install your Windows 11, or transfer the key to another PC, not knowing the product key can be an issue.

So, how to find Windows 11 product key from inside the system? Here I have explained just that! Keep reading to learn how you can find out your Windows 11 product key.

How To Find Product Key On Windows 11

There are many ways you can look for the Windows 11 product key on your PC. Here I have mentioned some of them. Try them one by one until you get the product key.

Method 1: Use Command Prompt

One of the easiest ways to check the Windows product key is through the Command Prompt. There is a command that will show your product key and you can note it down for later use. Here is how you can use the Command Prompt to find the Windows 11 license key:

  • Press the Windows + R keys to open the Run tool.
  • Type cmd and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter. This will open an elevated Command Prompt.
  • Once the Command Prompt is open, type the following command and press Enter:
wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey
  • Your Windows 11 product key should now be visible on the Command Prompt screen.

If the product key doesn’t appear, then try the next method.

Method 2: Check Your Receipt And Email

If you have purchased your Windows 11 license digitally, then you can check the order history and receipt to find the license key. Microsoft and Best Buy both provide the license key in the receipt and order history of the purchase.

If you have purchased the license from such a source, then you can check the order history and find the product key. For Microsoft Store, here is how you can check it:

  • Open Microsoft Store and log into the account you have purchased on.
  • Select the Downloads option next.
  • Click on the Product Keys option.
  • Select the Subscription page and you should be able to find the license key from here.

Method 3: Check The Sticker

If you have purchased a pre-built system with Windows 11, then the product key should be somewhere on the device. If it’s a desktop, check on the side panels for any sticker. For a laptop, check for similar stickers on the body, especially the bottom. The product key should be written on such stickers.

Method 4: Ask Your Organization

If your Windows 11 product key was provided by your organization, then they will likely have a record of the license key. Ask them about your Windows 11 product key and you should probably get it in no time. You may have to explain why you need it, which shouldn’t be that difficult.
