Magical Jelly Bean KeyFinder, known as KeyFinder, is an application created to show us the product activation key of many of the original programs of Windows or that have been developed for this platform. In fact, if it has ever happened to you that after installing the complete operating system or any software on it, you lose the activation keys, this tool will try to give you a hand in this regard.
How does this assistant work? Basically, showing the product key used at the time for the installation of Windows or any of the paid programs that we can get to have on our computer. What this little friend does is to search for information that may have been loose from our records, to show us that data, and more than once, solve a really annoying situation.
In fact, although in the first instance, KeyFinder was designed to offer the keys of Microsoft products, such as Windows or the Office office suite, over time, its creators have been improving it. Currently, it is capable of detecting several programs that we can have installed on our devices and that use activation keys of products so that we do not lose them for any reason.
The simplicity of use of this application is undoubtedly one of its key aspects. Just run it to find a small window, minimalist, and that is very noticeably divided into two sides. In the first part, you can see the list of all the programs installed on your computer that have been identified thanks to the work of this platform, and among which you can move without problems.
Just as you move from one program to another, you will get in the section on the right all the information about the registration of the product that KeyFinder has been able to recover. Generally, both data related to the user's name and details about when the software has been registered, the installation path of the same, or the current firmware version we have, are shown there.
In the free version, which is the one we have tested on the computer, there are programs such as the same Windows and the Office package, which are the classics, and others worth noting. Among them, we have UltraISO, Winamp, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and so on. Of course, this will depend on what programs we have actually installed on our PC.
As you can see, to the extent that you want to reinstall any of these components, from the less relevant software to Windows itself, this tool can become a luxury ally when it comes to recovering registry information. In fact, we are talking about an application compatible with the installation of Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP, NT, Vista, 7, 8, 10, the Office package, and many others.
Not only that, but also you can export the information that this program provides. How? You have registry keys by generating a text file that includes all the information about the different programs. In fact, this way, you will have this file available on all your devices if you need it and use it when you need it the most. This information can be exported in TXT or CSV format.
If you do not want to save this information, but you need to print it, within the main menu of KeyFinder, you will find the Print option to send the document to your printer machine quickly. This is an alternative that some users might find useful when the time comes, and it is appreciated that it is so easily available.
If you plan to reinstall your Windows operating system or completely restore your computer, you have to know that we highly recommend installing this platform. Even when it is not your immediate idea to perform such tasks, knowing that we can access all our activation keys and registry information is a huge relief.
There is not much to add to the program's operation because its consumption of space and system resources is minimal, and you will not even notice that you have it open only when you access your information. In fact, we could say that it is portable if we consider that it runs without any prior installation, so take it on your Pendrive if you think it could be helpful on more than one computer.
Then, in any case, the developers of this application propose us download its paid version, called Recover Keys, which explains that it can detect 3000% more programs installed on the computer in question. This software costs $29.95 and adds features such as Deep Scanning, Remote Scanning, Technical Support, or saving information in 10 formats beyond TXT or CSV.
