How to Get My Adobe CS5 Key

Adobe Creative Suite Version 5 offers software programs that build Web pages, edit images and provide desktop publishing and digital design capabilities, so there can be a lot to keep track of. Conveniently, all the programs in CS5 are linked to the same product key, also known as a license number or serial ID. Finding your Adobe CS5 product key can be a bit of a treasure hunt, as some programs offer more glimpses of this number than others. Knowing your product key is essential if you want to transfer your CS5 products to another computer, and knowing how to find the key is just as essential.

Step

Click the “Help” menu on the toolbar at the top of the screen.

Step

Click “System Info.”

Step
