Everything Search is a superb freeware desktop search tool which combines a blindingly fast indexing engine with a super swift instant result search. It indexed my full Vista machine and external drive in just 3 minutes (we’re talking 300+ GB of data!) after which I could find any file or folder instantly by typing just a few letters. It supports boolean and wildcards too, which makes it even more of a beauty. Definitely a keeper!
“Everything” is an administrative tool that locates files and folders by filename instantly for Windows. Unlike Windows search “Everything” initially displays every file and folder on your computer (hence the name “Everything”). You type in a search filter to limit what files and folders are displayed.
