Windows Product Key And License Finder

I recently misplaced my Microsoft Office product key and I needed to move it from one system to another. I couldn’t remember how to find the product key (I know they changed where they put it these days), so I did a Google search. In the process of looking, I found this very useful tool, which crawls your system for product keys. It works and I want to share it with you.
