RecentX Comments

Recent X

Positive Comment by michaelwillis
about RecentX Jan 2017

Extremely useful tool, if only it had an option to open at the last used Tag instead of
the recently opened files list it would be even more helpful.

about RecentX Dec 2015

Everyone who is a frequent user of Windows knows how boring is to surf among dozens of folders.

The concept of folders came from the real world, when we use to storage things inside folders. The same concept was introduced in Windows and remain until today. Who have the opportunity to play with Apple knows what I’m talking about.

RecentX helps a lot because the program is a truly short cut when we are talking about folders in Windows. I spend approximately 8 hours a day using a computer and RecentX is a program that I cannot leave without it.


Great program

Positive Comment by chesterwang
about RecentX Aug 2015

I have to access to a lot of folders on the company server everyday, and it wastes a lot of time switching between the folders and files. I found this program by chance, and it really helps me a lot and saves me a whole chunk of time. A really great one for productivity. The clipboard manager is another bonus!


The best way to find anything on your computer

I'm using RecentX from about three years and I can't imagine how to make a search inside my huge archive without it. It's fast, really cheap and reliable.
Only 2 small but useful things can be added: search history and import export of filters
