Generic key for Windows 10

Although the ProduKey app makes it easy to determine the Windows 10 product key on your computer, Microsoft is no longer using the legacy activation process anymore. Instead, devices now use a digital entitlement (digital license), which means that on Windows 10, you’re likely to find one of the known generic product keys:

Windows 10 Pro: VK7JG-NPHTM-C97JM-9MPGT-3V66T Windows 10 Home: TX9XD-98N7V-6WMQ6-BX7FG-H8Q99 Windows 10 Enterprise: NPPR9-FWDCX-D2C8J-H872K-2YT43

The reason is that the new activation mechanism now creates a unique identifier number using your computer hardware configuration (motherboard, processor, memory, hard drive, etc.), allowing you to reinstall the operating system without the need to re-entering the product key.
