How to Find Your MS Office Product Key Easily and Quickly




If you use Microsoft Office on your PC, you probably know that you need a product key to activate it. A product key is a 25-digit code that verifies that you have a legitimate copy of the software.

But what if you can't find your product key? Maybe you lost it, misplaced it, or never received it in the first place. Don't worry, there are still ways to find your product key and get your MS Office up and running. In this article, we will show you four methods to find your MS Office product key easily and quickly.


Before we start, you should know that how you find your product key depends on how you purchased MS Office. There are three main ways to buy MS Office:


  • You bought a physical copy of MS Office from a retail store or online. In this case, you should have received a product key card or a disk box with a sticker that has the product key.



  • You bought a digital copy of MS Office from Microsoft or another online store. In this case, you should have received an email with the product key or have it stored in your online account.



  • You subscribed to a plan such as Microsoft 365 that includes MS Office. In this case, you don't need a product key because your subscription is linked to your Microsoft account.



The main methods to find your product key are:


  • Find your product key via your Microsoft account



  • Find your product key via the sticker on your PC or disk box



  • Find your product key via the registry editor



  • Find your product key via a key finder software



Let's look at each method in detail.


Method 1: Find Your Product Key via Your Microsoft Account




If you bought a digital copy of MS Office or subscribed to a plan such as Microsoft 365, you can find your product key via your Microsoft account. Here's how:


  • Visit the Microsoft official website and log in to your account.



  • Once logged in, click your avatar and select My Microsoft Account > Services & subscriptions from the top menu.



  • Now, you should see a list of subscriptions. Find your MS Office version and click on View Product Key.

The cons of this method are:

  • You may not have a product key if you bought a physical copy of MS Office or if you have an older version that doesn't require online activation.



Method 2: Find Your Product Key via the Sticker on Your PC or Disk Box




If you bought a physical copy of MS Office from a retail store or online, you can find your product key via the sticker on your PC or disk box. Here's how:


  • Look for a sticker that has a barcode and a 25-digit code on your PC or disk box. The sticker may be on the back, side, bottom, or inside of your PC or disk box.



  • The 25-digit code is your product key. You can copy it or write it down for future use.

  • You may lose or damage the sticker over time, making it unreadable or invalid.



Method 3: Find Your Product Key via the Registry Editor




If you have already installed MS Office on your PC, you can find your product key via the registry editor. The registry editor is a tool that stores information about your system and software settings. Here's how:


  • Press Windows + R keys on your keyboard to open the Run dialog box.



  • Type regedit and click OK to open the registry editor.



  • Navigate to the following location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Office\16.0\Registration. Note that the number 16.0 may vary depending on your MS Office version.



  • You should see one or more folders with long names that start with and end with . These are the registry keys for your MS Office products.



  • Select each folder and look for a value named DigitalProductID. This value contains your product key in an encrypted form.



  • To decrypt the product key, you need to use a third-party tool such as NirSoft's ProduKey. Download and run the tool and it will automatically display your product key along with other information such as product name and ID.



The pros of this method are:


  • It works for any MS Office version that you have installed on your PC.



  • It doesn't require an internet connection or access to your Microsoft account.



The cons of this method are:


  • It's complicated and risky. You may accidentally delete or modify something in the registry editor, causing problems for your system or software.



  • You need to use a third-party tool to decrypt the product key, which may not be safe or reliable.



Method 4: Find Your Product Key via a Key Finder Software




If none of the above methods work for you, you can try using a key finder software. A key finder software is a program that scans your PC and retrieves the product keys for various software products, including MS Office. Here's how:



  • Download and install a key finder software such as Belarc Advisor, ProduKey, or ShowKeyPlus. Make sure you download from a reputable source and scan the file for viruses before running it.



  • Launch the key finder software and let it scan your PC. It may take some time depending on the size of your PC and the number of software products installed.



  • Once the scan is complete, the key finder software will display a list of software products and their product keys. Find your MS Office version and copy or write down the product key.



The pros of this method are:


  • It's easy and convenient.



  • It works for any MS Office version that you have installed on your PC.



  • It can also find product keys for other software products that you may need.



The cons of this method are:


  • You need to download and install a third-party software, which may not be safe or reliable.



  • You may need to pay for some key finder software or use a trial version with limited features.
