  • Hello mohdzubairahmed,

    Windows XP product keys can be located in one of two places:

    1.  If Windows came preinstalled on the computer, the product key is located on the Certificate of Authenticity affixed to the computer.  Look on the side, back or top of a desktop and on the bottom of a laptop for the CoA.

    2.  If Windows was purchased at retail, the product key is printed on a yellow-orange Product Key label that is affixed to the heavy paperboard inner folder that came inside the nice pretty retail box.
