    OEM devices store and encrypt the product key in the UEFI firmware chip. The product key is no longer on a COA sticker to help prevent theft. When you reset or install Windows 10, the product key will automatically be detected from the UEFI firmware chip, and will be used to activate.

    You may try this command to view the product key. Press the Win key + X key, open an elevated command prompt window, type the following command and hit Enter:
    wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey
    Your Windows product key will be displayed.

    Or simply use this program from Github - it will show the original key the laptop was shipped with, and the installed key if you used a different to key to activate a different version of windows.
    https://github.com/Superfly-Inc/ShowKeyPlus/releases/tag/ShowkeyPlus
    This is especially useful for people like me who upgraded our windows to Pro.

    You don't need a key to activate Windows 10 as its registered in your BIOS. look at the Microsoft "Activate Windows 10" and it will tell you exactly how to activate your windows. Its a simple step if your laptop is a genuine product of Acer.
