Refurbished PC key code

I have a refurbished Dell 7010 PC which has a Win 7  COA and a Win 10 refurbished sticker. Is there some way to locate the Product Key Code should it be necessary to reinstall Win 10?

If you have Windows 10 Pro activation as part of the refurbished device then you don't need to know the licence key. Windows 10 now uses hardware activation so as long as you don't change the motherboard then activation on a clean install will be automatic once the device connects to the internet.

Does it have Windows 10 Pro installed and activated. To check type winver in search and select the top result. The edition will be displayed.

Settings > Update and security, Activation will show the activation status.

Hi Gene

Should you ever need to re-install Windows 10, that should automatically re-activate

Since you previously had Windows 10 installed and activated on that PC during the installation process skip the steps which ask for a product key and select the option 'I am Reinstalling Windows 10 on this PC', and activation will not be an issue, your PC will have a digital entitlement stored on the Microsoft Activation Servers

If you still want to get the Windows 10 Product Key:
