Missing Windows 8 Pro Upgrade Product Key


I bought Windows 8 Pro using the $14.99 Upgrade Offer a while back. I'm now trying out the 8.1 preview and I just realized that I don't have the product key for me to roll back to Windows 8 if I needed to at a later date. Is there any way for me to retrieve the product key?



You can check your Email for the product key when you applied for the upgrade.


If you installed Windows 8.1 via the electronic download: the try a product key finder.  If you used the .ISO file to upgrade your key is replaced by the key used when upgrading.

(It does a good job of providing a wealth of information.
Will display your Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 product key.
However may not detect an Office key, so try one of the other two listed below for Office Keys.)
