Hi, right click start, left click system. Product ID.

Or shake your PC until you hear the key jingle /s

I was thinking that, : ), but I felt bad 'cause I've been really hard to live with recently and need to chill.

while you might need the key again, sometimes you won't, as the motherboard has already been recognised with windows installed. my pc broke completely and I ended up having to wipe my HDD and reinstall windows, but I didn't need the product key, just a cd with a copy of windows on it

You could run a script like this which is what I have always done when I need to pull a key off a machine when I am replacing the drive.
