Find the serial number on your Surface Cover

Before you can register or get service for your Surface Cover, such as Type Cover or Touch Cover, you need to know its 12-digit serial number.


Find the serial number on your Surface Cover

To find the serial number on your Surface Cover, look on the spine of the cover (the area that attaches to Surface). The serial number is a 12-digit string of numbers that looks like this: XXXXXXXXXXXX.

Find the serial number on the packaging

If you still have the original packaging for your Surface and cover or the standalone cover, you can find the serial number on the barcode label.

For a Surface Cover that you bought separately from a Surface, the serial number barcode will be on the clear plastic sleeve the keyboard was packaged in.

For a Touch Cover that was bundled with a Surface RT, the serial number will be on the barcode label on the box together with the serial number for the Surface.

Note
Touch Cover sold as part of a bundle is automatically registered when you register the Surface device.
