How to find the CD key for the Windows you are using now (no coding required)

If you are like me and have placed your CD key for your Windows somewhere and do not have it on you. Then you might be wondering how to find your CD key for your Windows computer?

Well, after doing some internet searching, I found a good free program that you can use. It's called "KeyFinder" by Magical Jelly Bean.

You can download a free version of this software https://www.magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/

I have tested it and it works on Windows 7 and Windows 10 computers and works as described. In that it helps me to find my CD key for my Windows computer.

This is great if you are too lazy or can't find your Windows 7 CD key or lift your laptop to find it pasted there. No coding to find your CD key required.

Just be sure to read the options in the installation steps very carefully. As there is a freeware offer in the installation steps that I know I did not want installed. So keep that in mind and read the steps carefully.

Here's some screenshots to assist you as well, so you know what to expect.

Page 1 - KeyFinder Setup Initial page
Select "I accept the agreement" and click "Next"
Click "Next " if you are happy with the location to install the program. Normally the default location is okay. 
Tick any of the options here depending on your preferences. Then click "Next". I just leave this unclicked as I don't need to use this software everyday. 
LOOK CAREFULLY HERE - I suggest selecting "Custom Install" and leaving this unticked so you don't install Wander Burst, unless you like ads...
Click "Install" when you are happy and ready
The software program will run and you will see your CD Key for your current Windows.

Happy CD key finding!

PS - I do not work for Magical Jelly Bean. Rather, I just stumbled across this useful app and would like to share it with you! ;)
