Hard to See OS Key

Postposted on Tue Jul 30, 2013 5:55 pm

Does anyone have any tricks on how to possibly see some faded Microsoft OS keys? Most of the key I can see it's just 2 sets that are hard to make out. I'd rather avoid having to buy another Windows 7 key if possible.

Since this is on a Microsoft site I have to assume it's OK.

I like Magic Jelly Bean Keyfinder. Had to match up some Windows Server 2003 licenses with what was installed years ago and that was dang useful.

I've tried that one too. IIRC it worked well enough, but was problematic to use at work because the corporate mandated AV kept flagging it as malware. :-?
