Extremely light, full of options, never crashes...

about Everything · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful

How can i describe this utility? Well you know, since i fell on this one, i even thought of disabling the Windows Search engine. Searching a file takes 1 second on my 1,5 To storage. Extremely light, full of options (run in background or not, launch at startup or not, disks to scan, shell context menus etc.).

it also never crashed on me.

When your brain is failing you and you don't remember where this damn file is, Everything comes to your rescue.

Everything DOES NOT index the contents of files, only filenames.

about Everything and Copernic Desktop Search · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful

I've been a Copernic Desktop Search user for a couple of years now, but I started to look for something less bulky and memory-consuming. I was ABOUT to install Everything until I read in it's help forum that this software DOES NOT index the contents of files. This is a crucial feature for me, as I use this type of indexers on my company's 500GB of Excel files database, so I basically dumped it as an option.

Just wanted to make the comment for all of you who are looking for this same functionality in an indexer. Everything only indexes filenames.

FINALLY - New version of Everything

about Everything and DocFetcher, Ultra File Search, Agent Ransack · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

Development of Everything has resumed again after many years.

I used to check every week for about 30 months and then got
tired of doing so and stopped checking. The one day I was on
Samer Kurdi's website and he mentioned that there was a new
version of Everything on the voidetools website.

Everything 1.3.3.658b Beta for Windows is the current beta version.

It is now under active development - 15 beta versions released since
early January to June this year.

Before this new development initiative the last work done on Everything
was in March 2009.

It is much faster than before!.

UAC issue fixed. Everything now runs a service as an elevated background
session. Then when you start the program each time it runs the client
interface in the user session. (You only need to deal with the UAC the first
time you run the program).

My all time favorite app has just got better.

Have tried many search programs like Locate32, Ultra File Search, Index
Your Files, Copernic, etc.

Best of bred

  • file search: Everything
  • file plus text search - Agent Ransack

Really nice application.

about Everything · · Helpful Not helpful 2 Helpful

It sits in tray hidden and takes 9 MB of RAM in my case (which is not too much nowadays), and it's very comfortable, when you make some hotkey for it (Win+S, for example). Scanning of 320 GB hdd took couple of seconds. And it searches faster, then you type :)

Really nice application.

I love this!

I've seen people use this software and I was like "why do you need it when you have a standard Windows search around?" But I was wrong. This is really small, simple and fast. When you have tons of files and is too lazy to find out where it is, this is the tool to use! I love this!

My #1 windows tool

about Everything · · Helpful Not helpful

This is one of the first things I install and configure after a new windows build.

I use it many times a day, and have it set to open with a hotkey. I have a system where I include tags/keywords in the filename of many of my personal files, and can call up anything in a flash.

One of the best tools out there, and I'm very glad it's being developed again.

Ridiculously fast windows search tool

about Everything · · Helpful Not helpful

It is pretty simple, just a window with a search box and the results show up below. Like Google's instant search, where it autocompletes the search for you as you type, Everything does the same, letting you just start typing and having the results just show up as you type out the search terms.

You can sort by name, type of file, date of the file, where it's located and more. I have a keyboard shortcut to open it when I hold shift-windows-E keys and it pops up to let me start typing to find the file. A simple tap of the TAB key moves from the search line to the results and back again, in case you need to quickly change your search terms. I love it and wish it would be integrated into Windows 7 so I'd get these results in the start menu.

Everything Search from voidtools is the best little known file management trick to date.

this user's text was too massive and informative so it is now here

there are some uncommonly strong keyboard tips (also PS) at the end so do check out the full file, but here is the condensed and sensible radio edit -----
This tool is awesome and has probably saved me hours and hours of time, and the installer is only three hundred and something kilobytes. If everybody knew about this four years ago think about where we would all be now. But alas, good knowledge sometimes goes undistributed. I personally will start to tell some people about this program and I hope that after you try it and like it you will too.
