I know & I agree that clean install is always better but it's just too much of time & effort consuming. During win7 days I used to actually format every year. But now with so huge windows size, updates, drivers, software it takes ages to start using the laptop again. But I will do it cleanly for sure. I have created a USB recovery drive as soon as received my laptop. not sure if the keys will be also automatically reinstalled since I couldn't find it nor could I find that tool which shows product keys
