    I'd ask in the Windows forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    Once there, click on Participate near the top of the screen, and select 'Ask a Question' or 'Start a Discussion'

  • Hello,

    The 'Academic Initiatives - General Discussions' forum is for any posts not covered under any of the other forums as related to Microsoft's Academic Initiatives.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.

  • Key can refer to many things, to clarify, are you able to log into your PC?

    What else did you purchase with your PC? Wireless Access Point? Services? Software?

    As for a key being on a physical receipt you would receive from a reputable dealer, nothing comes to mind. A receipt should only contain pertinent sales information Date/Time/Product/Cost/Return Policy/Store/Store Address.

    It will not contain any information such as Serial Number/Windows Authentication Key.

    Best Wishes
