If you purchased it on Internet from Microsoft, an activation key would have been on the web page confirming your purchase and it no doubt asked to print that page.

What was your previous operating system?

Upgrading from Win 7 and 8 to Win 10 was and is totally free until July 1st 2016.

If you really purchased it from Microsoft, it was not necessary, you just trowed $175 out the window.

Usually, Microsoft sends the activation key on the receipt.
