Everything Search Engine- Lightweight Program that do search so fast.

For a work that's highly engaged in really terrible file-handling, memorizing filenames and their paths is really an oblivious task. "Everything" is the ultimate desktop search engine for me. Just pressing the hotkeys, which can be user-specified ofcourse, (it's CTRL+ALT+F for me), typing in just a few letters of the hinted file or folder name and voila the file I've been searching for  is already at my fingertips!

"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.



What I like about Everything:
  • Boolean operators,regex and widcards can be used.
  • It loads lightning fast!
  • Can be assigned with a shortcut key
  • It monitors file system changes.
  • It opens in multiple windows.
  • It's lightweight and its FREE!
Ofcourse Everything has its own limitations: (nice status message for Facebook hah!)
  • compatible only with NTFS formatted volumes only. So if you want your external drives to be searchable by Everything just convert it from FAT-32 or FAT16 to NTFS volume.
  • works for Windows only (please tell me if there is one for Linux)
  • doesn't search file contents just files and folders only.
  • becomes so indispensable that when I don't have it I'm lost. I become so dependent with search everything that I almost don't have an idea where I save stuffs.
