I tried to explain why Listary will do this but i think you just need to download it and try it. I mean, its free.
For me, Listary means i don't have to remember where my folders are, i don't have a flooded desktop just to be faster opening a specific program, helps me with quick searching on the internet and much more.
It's the perfect butler. No matter in which program or on what i am working on. Listary is just a shortcut away :-)
It's the tool i use a hundret times every day.

Some of the Best Freeware You Are Likely To Find

about Listary · · Helpful Not helpful 1 Helpful Report as spam

Listary is an excellent Windows productivity enhancer. The details are hard to explain without trying the application or watching some short (1 minute) videos, but it is worth taking the time. Now, I can't imagine not using Listary.

Great utility, one of my fave parts is the addition of the small toolbar it attaches to windows that allows you to add commands to it. Something almost all of these other search apps don't have.

Only complaint is that while the author is very friendly, I believe he's the only one who develops it, and is extremely slow about it. This is a common gripe that you see from many other users on his support forum; you usually just hear the author say 'next version will be out soon ;)', and then 9 months go by and still no sign of a new release. I think it would be very useful to add at least a second (very active) developer to the project seeing as how popular it is with users.

Listary is something you must have as a windows user, it fills the shortcomings of windows file explorer and adds all these nice little things to your productivity.

Listary is the most effective workflow enhancer you can use

I've been using it for a few years now, I recommend it to all my colleagues. The app is really well done, you can specify inclusion and exclusion lists, use fuzzy matching, enter strings to search folders AND contained files, and it works in the file open / file save dialog boxes.

Fast, cleverly integrated keyboard style launcher

Works without a hitch on Windows 8.1. Gets faster to use once the contextual keyboard shortcuts are applied. I hate manual folder tree navigation in the open/save dialog. Listary solves this elegantly (like Default Folder X).

Best keyboard launcher on Windows 8.1

about Listary and Default Folder X, LaunchBar · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

Coming over from using Launchbar 6 and Default Folder X on the mac, this is best replacement I've found on Windows. I'm just boggled that this gem is not really promoted as one of the must have utility add-ons. Well designed into the file explorer and powerful without being obtrusive. The keyboard shortcuts within the app make the shortcuts very easy to access. Previously tried Launchy and Executor but they never really robust enough to be productive utilities.

It would be great if it weren't so slow

about Listary · · Helpful Not helpful Report as spam

This would be really useful if it opened quickly and responded quickly, but as it is now, it takes more time for this thing to load than if I just navigated directly to the file manually. It locks up in the process, so it isn't very nice to work with.

With the last version 4.02.1360, all the last little bugs should be removed.
I cannot use a PC without installing this smart software !
