WinKeyFinder is a small-sized and portable application whose goal is to retrieve and display the password to your Windows edition, in case you have lost or forgotten it.
It comes in handy when you want to reinstall the operating system, for instance. The app is very simple to figure out, because it includes uncomplicated features.
As installation is not a requirement, you can just drop the executable file somewhere on the hard drive and click it to run.
An alternative is to save WinKeyFinder to a USB flash disk or similar storage unit, in order to run it on any machine without prior installers.
What's important to keep in mind is that the Windows Registry does not get updated with new entries, and leftovers do not remain on the HDD after removing the utility. A standard file deletion is enough to accomplish this task.
The app is wrapped in a user-friendly interface where the Windows serial number is automatically displayed at initialization. You can copy it to the Clipboard, save or print it for safekeeping, as well as encrypt it to send to another user online using security measures.
In addition, the app is capable of recovering the product key of Microsoft Office, along with the ID number. This too may be saved and encrypted, as well as modified into another value.
The straightforward application is low-demanding when it comes to CPU and RAM, so it doesn't burden overall performance. No error dialogs were shown in our tests, and the utility did not hang or crash. Thanks to its general ease of use, WinKeyFinder can be handled even by less experienced individuals.
