Old Win7 notebook needs Win10 product code

HP Recommended
Pavilion dv7t-7000 CTO
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

My notebook/laptop was originally supplied with keys for a Windows 10 upgrade that I declined.  I would like to upgrade now.  How is it possible to acquire the old Windows 10 product key so I may upgrade my machine?

Hi,

Do you have the Windows 7 product code?

You can use this to activate a clean installation of Windows 10.

 

Hope it helps,

David

Oh yes.  Of course I have the code, at least I think it is the code they want.  So many possible IDs but I've saved most if not all.  To confirm should I use a third-party app to find my product code or is it easily uncovered?

Would the code/ID look something like (X for alpha, # for numeric):

 

XXXXX-X#XXX-X#X#X-X#XXX-XX#XX
