    Hello.

    I'm not sure if this is old news, but the last few days I have bin upgrading and fresh installing my friends and family laptops and PC's with Windows 10 via my USB stick and some asked about the serial key so I had a look around.

    This little program I found gives you the serial key plus tells you the OEM key you have from ur previous OS.

    Hi

    Yeah this has been discussed already since the launch. Have used it myself, but here it shows generic RTM product keys, even on my laptop that doesn't run the Insider Preview. So this doesn't work (for everyone).

    When you upgrade your Windows 8 device to Windows 10 while logged in with your Microsoft account, the product key is saved in the cloud. So whenever you want to do a reinstall/clean install, just skip the product activation and log in with your Microsoft account.
