CheckWindowsGenuine is a free tool for laptops and computers that checks if your Windows licence is the original. This utility is ideal if you've recently bought a device that's running a version of Win 7 or up. However, if you purchased the license yourself, there's no need to download and install this software.
Alternatively, instead of checking if your key is original, you can upgrade from an older Windows version to Windows 11. If you're still using Win 7, installing the Windows 7 Service Pack 1 is a great way to enhance your PC.
Check Windows license
CheckWindowsGenuine is a simple application with only one purpose. The software is simple and has no other purpose aside from this. Simply running the app will begin searching for information on your license and promptly displaying it on your screen.
You'll see the information about your license, whether Windows is activated, and the version of Windows you're currently running. You'll also know the application state if you need to purchase a new Windows license. This is a handy feature, as having the Windows license key is always helpful.
Easy to download
Downloading and installing the software is quick and straightforward, requiring only a few minutes to complete. Once you finish downloading the file, double-clicking on the executable file will begin the process of reading your computer's Windows key.
Light on resources
CheckWindowsGenuine is exceptionally light on your computer's system resources. The application can run in the background without affecting any other software. This lack of need for resources allows the program to finish its task before you begin launching new applications quickly.
Command Prompt interface
CheckWindowsGenuine uses an almost identical interface style to Windows Command Prompt. This similarity makes it easy to read the information on your computer screen as you'll have no issue reading it. The black and white text contrast easily and are in a high resolution for your screen.
Small but handy
CheckWindowsGenuine is a handy tool to have when you purchase a new laptop or computer. The software is great if your device is pre-owned as well, as it helps ensure your Windows license information is up-to-date. The application runs almost instantly and ends with a cmd screen listing your Windows version's information.
