Hi expert

We have purchased some Office 2016 and 2019 OEM license, and installed on Win7 and Win10 PC.

I can access the license portal and know the key, however the file keeping which key for which PC is lost.

Is there any way to match it back ?

Thanks, Michael

I use Belarc Advisor to make a list of all the licenses and keys for my personal computer. That software is free--but is not licensed for commercial use across a network. For that purpose, the developer suggests their BelManage product

The product key finders from the past don't seem to work with the new digital licenses.  The only solution is to keep a written record (or digital record) yourself.

Since 2016/365 Microsoft only store the last five characters of the Office activation Key on the PC but this should be enough information for you to identify from those Keys you've purchased which is installed on each machine.
