Just bought a computer from Bestbuy, and I cannot find the product key.

I just bout a new laptop from Bestbuy, and I am having a hard time finding the product key. It is not in any of the material in the box, it is not on the computer itself, and I do not have access to the battery. Any ideas?

Most new computers do not come with a product key

If it's the windows activation it should auto activate once connected. If it's a key for MS office word/excel/powerpoint it is sold separately.

As stated above, ever since Windows 8 was introduced a few years ago the product key is no longer printed on the bottom of the computer, thus Windows 10 machines do not include it either.

There are plenty of free utilities online that you can download to retrieve the key should you want to have it.
