Hi, Are there any tools to keep my software keys all in one place? I used to use Excel, but there are way too many now.

That way I can keep them organized and together.

What features are you looking for that can't be provided by Excel? I keep all of my product keys and serial numbers (for both hardware and software) in a plain text file. It is simple to maintain and search, and contains all of the data I need on a product (hardware/software manufacturer, purchase price, purchase date, etc.). The text file currently has 587 lines in it and it's no problem to search for and find what I need. I'm sure an Excel spreadsheet would be just as functional as my simple text file, probably even more capable, so I'm wondering in what way there are too many keys for Excel to handle. Excel can easily handle a large number of rows and columns, and I think that the matrix approach of Excel makes sense in this situation. For example, here's a very nice (free!) template for Software Inventory that should work well for a large number of entries:
