Add a new product key to Windows 8 or Server 2012

I had a request to add a purchased product key to a server running a trial version of server 2012.  We are still learning the new layout so of course the question was how?

A quick check found we could change it via a GUI.  There is the command line; but, I wanted to use the GUI.

To change the license simply enter:

This will bring up the following window:


Simply cut and paste the new license, click Activate and the change will happen.
