Any Windows computer should come with a license key for activation. However, that key isn't always readily available. Some computers have a sticker on the outside with it, but with newer computers the key is usually pre-loaded and stored digitally on the system.
This article will show you how to find your license key with a program called ShowKeyPlus.
ShowKeyPlus is a simple third-party software that is made to bring up the license key on your system.
Here is how to use the ShowKeyPlus software:
1. You can get ShowKeyPlus as a Microsoft/Windows Store app. It's a quick download and you can find it at the following link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/showkeyplus/9pkvzcprx9nv?activetab=pivot:overviewtab
2. On the Microsoft Store page click the Get button to bring up the Microsoft store app on your computer.
3. On the app page, you'll see another Get button, click it and it will turn into an Install button. You'll need to sign into a Microsoft Account if you're not already.
4. Once the app finishes downloading, you'll see the option to Launch. Click on that to launch the app and see your license key information. It will also be available in the Start Menu as a program on your computer if you want to use it again at another time.
