Steam add Retail CD Key

What is a CD key and where can I find it?

The CD Key is a serial number with a combination of 13, 15, 18, or 25 letters and numbers – it can be found on a sticker inside your game’s case or printed on the game’s quick reference card.

The CD Key acts as your proof of purchase for the game – Steam Support may ask for it if you need to establish your ownership of an account. It is recommended that you keep your CD Key in a safe place to ensure the security of your account.
