As part of my recent migration to a new PC, I needed to find the
product keys for various programs I was planning to reinstall.
Easier said than done. Fortunately, I found a sweet utility that
saved me hours of rummaging through boxes. Magical Jelly Bean’s
Keyfinder quickly and efficiently finds the product keys for
installed programs, then lets you print them for safekeeping.
It’s compatible with all versions of Windows and can dig up the
keys for your operating system, Office apps, and various other
programs. On my machine it found keys not just for Windows XP and
Office 2003, but also for Command and Conquer: Generals (best RTS
game ever, if you want my opinion).
Keyfinder is fast, free, and incredibly handy. It doesn’t even
require installation. I recommend it not just for those migrating
to new PCs, but for anyone who wants to keep a hardcopy of
important product keys.
