    Alright, question is probably kinda stupid of me to ask, but, in Windows 7 (build 7000), where do I go to activate windows? I know it prompts you for the key during installation, but I forgot to write my key down XD.

    You only get a key if you get via Microsoft, right?

    Nah, there's only about 8 keys that activate for everyone. About a million people or more share my key tbf.

    If you google your key, it should come up with loads of pages.

    I'm unique though, I got mine early, no one else has one like me lol:p
