Solved!

I have a newish Envy 13-ah. Where is the Windows OS license key

HP Recommended
Envy 13 ah
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Anyone have any idea of where to find the Windows 10 OS key?  I don't need it now, but for sure some time in the future I will need it so I want a record of it.

No sticker on the underside.  No apparent indication of where to look for the Operating System key.  All this seems odd.

It is not printed anywhere.  It will require some software to retrieve the key, but it is not really needed as Microsoft does it digitally, now.  If you have to reinstall Windows 10 for any reason, it will activate over the internet, no key input is needed.

 

If you actually want the key use BelArc Advisor or Magical Jelly Bean.  There are others, too.  Google if you do not find either of those.
