What is the Windows License Information and Backup Video tutorial about?

In this video tutorial called Finding information and backing up your Windows license, I'll show you how to find out about your Windows product license.

We will also see how we can see what product key we have, to back it up.

Why it is good to find out what type of license we have - OEM, RETAIL

If you want to upgrade your hardware, that is, buy a new laptop, a new PC or maybe you just want to change the motherboard; It's good to know what kind of license we have.

What is an OEM license?

The OEM license is permanently related to the hardware and can only be used once on the laptop or desktop on which it was registered.

The OEM license can be called a "single use license"

What is the RETAIL license?

This license may be transferred to another PC, provided it is uninstalled from the PC on which it was originally used.

The RETAIL license can be called a "recyclable license"

How do we know what kind of license we have, OEM or RETAIL?

  • To find out what kind of license you have CMD and order slmgr /dli
  • For more details, place your order in CMD slmgr /dlv

How can we see the product key so we can make a backup

  • For PCs that you purchased with a license from the store, in CMD with administrator rights, give the command:

wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey

  • If you have a license purchased from the store or a digital one, use the ProductKey application from NirSoft

Download ProductKey

CAREFUL:

If you want to make a tutorial on how to move a RETAIL license from one PC to another, please write to me in the section comments.

  1. Very instructive this video tutorial and thank you.
    Please tell me how to use a license, if in 2018 I had a licensed windows 7, and later I switched to windows 10 Pro Insider to which I copied the license in time, but because the motherboard on the PC SESKTOP it broke I would like to use that license on a laptop with windows HOME.
    Thank you with respect.

  2. yes i want a tutorial for windows key

  3. Hi, is my license still RETAIL and is it normal to have the same termination as yours 3V66T?
    I guess we don't have an identical series

    • The Windows key is:
      VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T
      This is a generic key, used during installation or during an upgrade. This generic key will not activate Windows 10, but will only be used in the installation or upgrade process.

  4. Hi, I bought a laptop with windows installed but it is the 10 HOME version, how can I install the 10 PRO version, I kept trying with one but Home is still installed…. Thank you.

  5. I want a tutorial on how to move a RETAIL license from one PC to another.
