1. KeyFinder by Magical Jelly Bean
Developer, Magical Jelly Bean added a solution for premium commercial users and non-commercial users, where you can find out the Product ID, and CD Key of Windows operating system.

I always appreciate straightforward programs that don’t consume plenty of our resources and provide results. ProduKey is a lightweight program designed to provide Windows and Office applications product keys, and I have tested it on my Windows 10 edition machine.
I was surprised that the program supports multiple operating system editions such as Windows 98, XP, Vista, 7th, 8th and 10th editions. They also added further support for Microsoft Office applications starting from the 2003 edition to the latest version. However, ProduKey doesn’t support non-Microsoft products.

The quick toggles allow the administrators to copy product keys to notepad in the TXT format. You have two options available, 1) Copy selected information to clipboard and 2) Copy all information to the clipboard. Either way, you can copy and paste the Product Key information to notepad and use it later. However, I haven’t found newer updates and sometimes it fetches incorrect Product Key, but this is a good alternative to find product keys.
A) Supports Windows 7 and lower editions.
B) Dated interface but works flawlessly on Windows 10.

The developer spent most of the time on the coding and compatibility to newer editions. Windows Product Key Viewer added necessary supports to meet modern standards despite having an outdated design. I want to inform the readers that this is a portable solution and doesn’t require installation.
