Copernic Desktop Search Home

CNET Editors' review

Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo aren't the only ones bringing more search power to consumer desktops. Copernic's Desktop Search tool makes it fast and easy to find documents, e-mails, and other files on local drives. Like other desktop search tools, it creates a searchable index of all the data on a computer's drives, and updates it every time a file is added, removed, or modified.

)

A left-side search column allows simple keyword queries and more refined searches based on file size, date, file type, or folder. Easy-to-read icons at the top of the screen let you limit searches by category, such as stored HTML pages, e-mail, and videos. The program is lightning-quick, displaying results as fast as you can type.

We especially like the Copernic Deskbar, a search window that appears in the Windows Taskbar and makes quick queries very handy. However, we would like an image viewer, and we wish the application's PowerPoint viewer could display graphics. Copernic comes with optional search toolbars for Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Overall, Copernic offers an efficient way to search your PC, especially for multiple or large hard drives.

    "I love this app!"

    May 10, 2013  |   By EllenParrish

    Version: Copernic Desktop Search Home 3.7.0.8

    Pros

    fast, comprehensive search. Pro version doesn't spam up your desktop. Who has time and patience to wait for windows explorer. Also, you can really get specific with keyword and file type searches

    Cons

    the indexing takes a little effort to conquer

    Summary

    If you have to sift through zillions of folders for obscure documents this is the app for you!

    "Adds advertisements to EVERYTHING"

    April 2, 2013  |   By phlypp

    Version: Copernic Desktop Search Home 3.7.0.8

    Pros

    Did find the files I was looking for.

    Cons

    After I installed, ads started popping up everywhere, Reddit, newspaper columns, comment fields, etc. It talked about an ad-free version if you paid but I assumed this meant ads when you were using the software, not in my entire browsing experience. STAY AWAY!

    Summary

    Malware infected, unless you don't mind ads in everything you read on-line.

    "I'm staying away - Once bitten, once shy..."

    February 6, 2013  |   By JWAFrance

    Version: Copernic Desktop Search Home 3.7.0.8

    Pros

    having read the warnings, there's no way I'm installing this. In theory, it's a great tool - I was looking for sommething to replace the as yet to be beaten goole search that you lauchnched in WinXP by double clicking on the Ctrl key... Nothing has ever bettered it - Unless you can PLEASE tell me otherwise.... I installed this on the WinXpside of my Mac (through Parallels) and (continued on "Cons"!...

    Cons

    Installaiton on WinXP made mw wonder why on earth CNET had given this product a thumbs up... It certainly did nothing ueful for me.

    Summary

    I still long for google search to be replaced.... If you know of a good seacrh engine, please speak up.
