Finds: folders, files and contents ... and ... dates or date ranges
Finds contents using compound "look for" strings ...
eg, OR, AND, wild-cards (asterisk, question-mark) ... or RegEx expressions.

400+ file types ... can be edited in Options ... (or in registry)

In my experience faster then any other buit-in or free standing file contents finders

**CON: ** Context Menu caption "Search via FileSearchEX" is to long (verbose) ...
• I changed mine to a simple "Find ..."
• caption can be modified in the Registry ... the key to search for is Search via FileSearchEX
• modify the key to eg. Find ...
• the caption-text MUST be identical in all registry locations, else it fails.
• must modify registry "as Admin"

HKCR\Directory\Background\shell\Search via FileSearchEX
HKCR\Folder\shell\Search via FileSearchEX
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Directory\Background\shell\Search via FileSearchEX
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Folder\shell\Search via FileSearchEX Reboot

Now sells for $135 then $35 per year for updates and support.
Otherwise $135 one off payment, for ever, no support, no updates
It used to sell for $10, then $10 per year for updates
Catch is; updates are very infrequent

update 27-Oct-2020
