How to Find Microsoft Office Product Key
Have you lost the Microsoft Office product key? Things may happen when you plan to reinstall Office on a new PC or encounter a computer crash, etc. Based on product key search results, finding Office product key is not as easy as the Windows one. For instance, you can extract the Windows product key through the Windows Registry.
Unfortunately, in this case, starting with Office 2013, Microsoft has changed the way they handle Microsoft Office product key, only storing part of the product key on the local PC. So how to find Microsoft Office product key?
No matter what Office version you use, the EaseUS Todo PCTrans can help you view the full Office product key. Besides the key finder software, we also list the manual way for finding Office product key.

- Find Microsoft Office Product Key via EaseUS Todo PCTrans
- Find Product Key for Microsoft Office via ProduKey
Compared to the common way to find the product key on the Microsoft store or mail, the software has few steps and easy to operate. In the following part, two tools are showing up - EaseUS Todo PCTrans and ProduKey.
Applies to: Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 2013, Office 2016 (MSI)
After trying this software to extract the product key, we recommend the EaseUS Todo PCTrans. The fast PC transfer possesses many features, such as app migration, files and account moving, etc. Especially with the product key feature, it will extract the Office, Windows, and Adobe to avoid losing them in case of app reinstallation or some PC crash issue. Follow the detailed steps to find the product key:
Step 1. Launch and Run EaseUS Todo PCTrans on the PC, and choose "Product Key".
Step 2. Click "Scan", and you can see the product key of Windows, Adobe, and Office. Save the key to the selected location or choose "Copy" for direct use.
Applies to: Office 2003, Office 2007, Office 2010, Office 2013
ProduKey is another easy-to-use key finder tool, which only applies to versions before Office 2013. It will show the product keys of Windows 10, Microsoft Office and other Microsoft Programs. Unlike the EaseUS Todo PCTrans, you can not use ProduKey to find product keys for non-Microsoft programs.
How to Use ProduKey to Get Product Key:
Step 1. Download ProduKey.zip and unzip it.
Step 2. Click and open produkey.exe.
Step 3. Then you will see the product key for the current Microsoft Office and operating system.
Both software is worth using, but in terms of supported versions and data security, EaseUS Todo PCTrans is better. Some malware will steal your product key through ProduKey. Whenever you want to view the Office product key or transfer Microsoft Office to new computer, you can try it.
The manual way also has differences in supported Office versions. Please read carefully and find the most suitable one.
Applies to: All Microsoft Office Versions
- Product Package or Manual: If you purchase Microsoft Office from the retail store, your product key will be glued to the product box or recorded in the manual.
- Mail: If you bought one of the Office versions from the Microsoft online store, check your mailbox, you would get a surprise unless you don't clean up spam all the time.
- Computer Case: If Microsoft Office is pre-installed on the PC when you purchase, the product key should be printed on the sticker. You can find it in the computer case.
If you lost your manual or sticker, don’t worry, we have another method on the next part.
Step 1. Visit the Microsoft website. Choose "Sign in" in the upper right corner and input your user ID and password.
Step 2. Choose "Install from a disc". On the next page, click "I have a disc", and then choose "View your Product Key".
If you look up the product key, write it down and save it in an easy-to-find place.
Contacting Microsoft to Get Office Product Key
If you don't locate the product key while using one of the methods outlined above, the last way is to contact Microsoft directly. Before contacting Microsoft, you need to have proof of purchase.
