Product Key Explorer is intended to retrieve the serial keys of already installed products, which definitely comes very handy if you have lost the original data. This way, you can reinstall these software products using the same key. This tool can recover not only your operating system’s key but also those of other products, and luckily, more than 8,000 programs are supported.

The application is very easy to use, and it could not be in another way, as everything the user should do is push a button and wait until the results appear. However, only the keys of the products installed on your local computer are shown by default. Thus, if you want to know to find this information on other machines, you need to specify a computer name, an IP range or an IP address list. It is a pity, though, that this application’s interface does not have a modern look.

In general, there is not much to say about this simple yet useful application, except that it has a very specific function, which it performs without any difficulty. Unfortunately, it cannot be used as a portable application, which means that it needs to be installed. This product is shareware, and if you use its trial version, it will only show part of the product keys. You should also know that, although it does not have a high cost, there are similar applications available for free.
