How To View/Backup/Recover Product Keys in Windows

You always install a bunch of applications on your PC and laptop, most common of these being a Microsoft Operating System (Windows 7 / Windows 8) Microsoft Office suite and so on. These applications are essential to almost all the users nowadays.

If you are a computer user who values their software applications and if you use a genuine licensed software (you always should say NO to piracy !), you always need to store the license key and other information for the applications that you pay for. If you want to view, backup or recoverĀ the license key and other information about your Windows Operating System and other Microsoft applications like Microsoft Office, then the Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is the perfect freeware application for your use.

The application is available as a freeware, free of cost for the basic version. But basic version is sufficient enough to fit all your needs. The installer for this application is also very small in size (~1.2 MB).

You can download the free version from here.

The installation process is simple, straight and fast. As you can see from the screenshot above, it can display license key from all the Microsoft products and some other applications installed on your computer as well (I didn’t had MS Office installed on my home laptop but it shows license for MS Office pretty well).

Some other handy features on this application include saving all the license keys in a text file and adding registry keys for additional applications so that it can show their license information as well (do this at your own risk and if you know what you are doing).
