In order to locate the file you would need to follow the below-given steps:

  1. Login to your QuickBooks accounts and navigate to your QuickBooks company file.
  2. Now from your keyboard, enter the F2 key and this will help you access product registration screen.
  3. Now with F3 button on your keyboard, you will be able to lay your hands on “Help application window”.
  4. From the top navigation bar, click on the Open icon.
  5. Here you will see the list of different QuickBooks related files.
  6. Press Ctrl+F and search for .dat extension file. Click the file with the name QBregistration.dat and open it.
  7. Here the file should open up with Notepad. If that doesn’t happen then you will need to select the program from the list of options provided and click open it.
