How to recover my product key of windows 8, I installed the windows 10 techniques view without taking backup I need to go back to my windows 8 pls someone help


Hi Carmen,.

Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forum.

I understand that you had not taken any prior backup upgrade to Windows 10 Technical Preview and need product key to retrieve Windows 8.

So, first of all, I suggest you to check the product key in email messages when you purchased the license to the product for Windows 8. Once you get the product key, you can create a Windows 8 ISO and reinstall using this product key. See the following article:

To create installation media Windows 8.1

However, if you had bought the system pre-installed with Windows 8. Then, you may need to contact the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) system for Windows 8 discs to restore the older operating system.

Hope this information is useful. Let us know the results for further assistance, we will be happy to help you.

    Here are four utilities, which can display your product keys if they are still there:

    To find out which product keys are used:


    If you have multiple Windows licenses and have installed but don't know which one is in use, use the following instructions to double check.


    Apples of: Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1

    User level: beginner to Expert

    If you have multiple PCs in your home or business running different versions of Windows and would like to have on the same version, you can check that you do not use a product key that is already in use. For example, if you bought 3 copies of Windows 7 Professional, installed one, active, but later wanted to update another PC but can't remember which key was used, this trick can be very handy.

    Click Start, type: cmd

    Press enter on your keyboard

    At the command prompt, type the following command:

    slmgr - dli

    Press enter on your keyboard

    A dialogue window will appear on the screen. This will reveal the partial product key which gives an idea of the product key that is in use. Compare with product keys that you have and it will confirm copy of which is in use. When we're done, click OK and close the command prompt window.

    For users of Windows 8 and Windows 8.1:

    Press the Windows key + X

    Click on command prompt

    Alternative means to quickly launch the command prompt quickly on all versions of Windows:

    Press Windows key + R

    Type: CMD

    Press enter on your keyboard

  • How to recover my product key lost for Windows 8?

    last month, I bought computer dell laptop with windows 8. But unfortunately I lost my product key of the kit. How can I get this key?

    Hi JacobJiby,

    Thanks for choosing Microsoft Community!

    I understand that you have lost the product key that you received from Dell. We will give our best to help you.

    Windows 8 Dell systems are pre-activated from the factory. Once the PC is turned on, it remains active unless there is significant physical changes such as the motherboard or hard drive replacement. If you reinstall Windows on the computer, there not need product key as it is injected on the motherboard of the factory.

    If you want more help, I suggest you to contact Dell technical support.

    Hope it will be useful. If you still have questions, please reply and we will be happy to help you.
