    Hello gpa958,

     

      In the past, Microsoft used to store Windows Registration Information directly linked with the Product Key that the registration was submitted for. Unfortunately, due to Privacy laws and legal action, Microsoft is no longer able to store the Windows Owner's Personal Identifing Information linked to the Product Key for that Windows. Therefore, we no longer have any way of knowing what Product Key belongs to you.

     

    Thank you,

  • You can use special software to recover your Windows key. Most of them supported all versions Windows and other Microsoft products. Also there is a products like "Recover Keys" that support a lot of other major software packages.
