My Thoughts on SterJo Key Finder

SterJo Key Finder finds the product key for more programs and games than many other key finder programs, which means it will probably be very useful for making a catalog of keys or finding install keys for more obscure programs.

 

I like how easy it is to copy out product keys and search through the list. However, the products are grouped alphabetically only, which means the list can quickly become crowded, as several programs may also display their product ID or other registration information. Then again, you can search through the list of product keys, so it's really not all that difficult to use.

I mention above that over 500 product keys can be found with SterJo Key Finder. On the list of supported programs, Microsoft Office 2013 isn't shown even though its product key can be found. This means there may be even more programs that are supported but simply aren't listed on their website.

Overall, the program is pretty easy to use and can be very useful because of its vast inventory of supported products and relatively straightforward interface.

Note: The official download page doesn't seem to be 100% reliable. Here's an alternative link to download SterJo Key Finder from CNET's Download.com.
