    Hi there.

    I have a new Dell W10 Pro system and I would like to obtain the Windows Product Key.
    Isn't that stored in the system BIOS?

    Please advise on how to obtain that information.

    No need to do that. Here is an easier way to get it from an elevated command prompt.
    wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey

    I seem to recall that in a far ago time, one was able to use 'ctrl+v' to paste a command into the elevated prompt. Now I may well be wrong, but I ask because I am wondering the purpose of the above coded instruction of 'wmic path softwarelicensingservice get OA3xOriginalProductKey' I tried, multiple times to paste the copied text into the cmd prompt, and all I get in the cmd window is literally "^V".

    So..is there a way to be able to enter copied text into a cmd window and have it run the intended program or task?
