where to find windows product key

HP Recommended
Pavilion 23 all in one
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)

I have a Pavilion 23 all-in-one desk top. I lost all the documents that oringinally came with it. Now I can only find serial number and product number on back of the PC. Where can I find 25 digits windows product key? I need the key to reinstall windows. Thank you for help!

Hi,
 
The key is in the BIOS of your machine, please use the following tool to get it:

   http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html

When run this tool, it produces a report, scroll down to Software Management section. Windows 8, 8.1 or 10  product key is in there.

You can also use the following tool to find out:

If neither of those utilities work, here is an alternative you can try:  https://github.com/Superfly-Inc/ShowKeyPlus/releases/download/ShowKeyPlus6125/ShowKeyPlus.zip

Good Luck
