I've got 2 copies of Win7 Upgrade, how do I find out which one I put on my machine? The other copy I wanted to give to my niece and want to make sure she gets the one I didn't put on here.

Thanks!

You can either use Produkey or the Magical Jelly Bean Finder. Both work. :huh:

go to my computer, right click, properties. It should say down towards the bottom what your product key is.

You're welcome! :huh:

No, that's something else called "Product ID". If you notice, it's only numbers (20 of them)....a Microsoft product key is 25 numbers and letters. So I don't really know what that "Product ID" is...but it's not the product key. :thumbup2:
