A product key, also known as a software key, serial key, or activation key, is a software key specific to a computer program. It indicates that the copy of the program is the original.
2-How to check if your Windows Key is genuine or not?
Microsoft PID Checker is a free support for Microsoft products. Unlike MyKeyfinder which finds and stores your keys for you, this app checks if you have the right product key for programs like MS Office, Windows, Visual Studio and others. You can also order multiple items to see when they will run out.
There are different operating systems and product types that you can use Microsoft PID Checker. There are custom codes for specific versions, such as Windows 10 and Office 2019. Whenever a new Microsoft product comes out, the manufacturer updates it in the list. Confirm the product key
Sometimes, some Microsoft programs and applications will have a valid product key. Sometimes people lose these keys or don't know where to find them. Other times you have them and it is important to support them. Microsoft PID Checker not only retrieves product keys, but also confirms if they are correct by performing configuration settings. Find lost keys
When product keys are lost, you don't have to worry about not being able to back them up with Microsoft. The program has a detailed algorithm that will throw out the code in the same way that MS does when it tries to confirm your key. This way, you will have the peace of mind of using the app without it stopping you.
If you have an MS product that is not listed, you can make a custom Pkeyconfig method for your specific version. It allows you to see the remaining time of the activation time, ensuring that it will not expire. If you miss the deadline, you will need to purchase a new license. Check your Microsoft product key
Microsoft PID Checker is freeware that helps you activate and validate any Microsoft product key for your program. Sometimes these things won't work until you've done the work, which can slow you down. What makes it unique is that there is a configuration code for the new version so that your operating system does not become outdated.
Use Command Prompt
If you are already using a product key on your Windows 10 system and want to know its validity, you can do that using the Command Prompt. Here are the steps for that:
- Launch the Command Prompt with the Administrator privileges.
- Type the following command and hit the enter key: slmgr /dli
- The command will display the Windows 10 edition, License Status, and the type of key – OEM or RETAIL.
If the license status says Licensed, then you are using the genuine Windows 10 key. If there is anything else, then the key is not genuine.
