If you bought it through Steam, a recipt should be sent to your email account, you can save it as PDF there.

Install DoPDF and it will allow you to save your receipts as PDF's if you don't have Microsoft XPS Document Writer (it comes with Windows 7 and maybe Windows Vista too).

Cosinus's method works too.

No, a copy is sent to your email.

The receipt isn't really that useful to be honest.

That cd-key you have though. STORE THAT IN A SAFETY DEPOSIT BOX. If anything ever happens to your account (account hijack, can't access, email issues etc) you're going to need that physical cd-key.

DO NOT THROW THE ORIGINAL CD-KEY AWAY.
