How can I prove that it is true that \[det(AB)=det(A) \times det(B)\] where A and B are square matrices?

let A =2x2 and B=2x2 and compute the determinants leaving them ad-bc and eh-gf then show that the product of that is similar to the det of the product of AB
if this works on a 2x2 then show that it can used on a matrice of any eelement size so long as its square
But is there a more proper and concrete proof instead of using the 2x2 matrix formula for determinants? I know that this is true for all matrices of order n. But I wanted to prove it in a more concrete manner.
