So I just bought an Acer Aspire E 17 with windows 10 install on it and when I started the laptop their was few things to do and one of dose was to enter the key product but I've searched everywhere and I can't find it at all what do I do? Of course there is an option "do it later" but what will happen if I press it?

The best product key finder is Belarc https://www.belarc.com/products_belarc_advisor

It will find your OS, MS Office, and probably other keys. It also useful for system information as well. Plus it's free.

Not to mention if it is Windows 10 and it came pre-installed, it is hardcoded into the motherboard (I have an Acer as well). So you can reinstall Windows 10 100 times and it will use the same product key. Again, like rgd1101 is asking, this is Windows.

Many times it is on a label on the bottom of the laptop. Otherwise it should be on a label attached to the instruction manual.

Since Win 8 OEMs have been embedding the product key in the bios and not using a sticker. When reinstalling choose skip when it asks for the product key and it should activate itself after the install completes and it has an internet connection.

That works, however, when wanting to change or add features, you need your product key, and it is not filled in.

No Bignasty is correct, I forgot about that. Once it activates its done. You don't need the product key for anything.
