    You can download the latest version of the Windows operating system directly from Microsoft’s website for free.

    But to activate it, you will need a product key which is a 25-character alphanumeric code that looks something like this:
    XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX-XXXXX

    So, find your Windows product key and save it somewhere. You will need it when you change devices or make a fresh installation.

    Click the Start menu and type in cmd to search for Command Prompt.

    Then, right-click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

    In the Command Prompt, copy-paste the following command exactly as it is:
    wmic path SoftwareLicensingService get OA3xOriginalProductKey

    Press Enter and your product key will be displayed.
