    "Fast, small, free program to search file & folder names"

    July 5, 2012  |   By wildboy211

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    *Fast
    *Small
    *Free
    *Takes minimum system resources
    *Does not search file contents (this could be a con as well)

    Cons

    *Does not search file contents (this is a pro though)
    *Still in infancy (no plugins, etc)
    *Could be made into a GREAT program if open-source

    Summary

    Between movies, music, applications and documents, i have literally thousands of files on 4 different hard drives. When im searching for a movie for example, i can add all the folders in the exclude section of this program that i dont want to search, and find the movies, song, or document that much faster. Exactly what i was looking for. Now if we could get some plugins and made this program open source, i believe this application could be made into something that is legendary. It has the potential. Just as we were tired of searching with Yahoo, AOL and Jeeves in 1998, Google came along and showed us how we need to search the internet. I am tired of using Windows default search, and i am grateful that i found this program. Its simplistic design allows you to begin searching the minute you open it, and then come to find out, it has more option to customize your search with Regex, add searches to Windows context, and much, much more.

    "NO FILE CONTENTS SEARCH - Important Distinction!"

    April 22, 2012  |   By cohjef

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Fastest file name searcher I have installed

    Cons

    NO FILE CONTENTS SEARCH - Important Distinction!
    This distinction is not made clear in the program's title "Everything" which is completely misleading. The CNET reviewer also should have made this clear in his first paragraph, so those who need a file contents search can keep on looking, and not waste time auditioning this program.

    "Fast and easy to use"

    March 30, 2012  |   By moviegeek65

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Fast, easy to use, low resources

    Cons

    None, none, none

    Summary

    Search Everything is a must have for Windows 7, it searches everything on a drive(even hiiden files). I upgraded to Windows 7 recently but the built-in search sucks, I miss the search feature on XP but Search Everything has made it all better.

    "The Fast and the Furious..."

    March 3, 2012  |   By PrashantGogoi

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    - Fast
    - Fast
    - Fast :)

    Cons

    - One thing I missed is the ability to use wildcards and search for a particular type of file i.e. folder, doc, ppt etc. Need to check if I am missing something here.

    Summary

    Everything is one fast program (By 'Fast', I mean the speed of light) It is undoubtedly THE FASTEST desktop search tool I have ever come across. It pops up results so fast I feel prehistoric for having used Windows Search all these years :)

    Everything is an excellent program and a must have for everyone. Forget Windows Search and get Everything; you will not regret it.

    "Wonderful Application!!!"

    January 22, 2012  |   By UserXXI

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    The program finds what you need in seconds!

    Cons

    The program doesn't work with FAT system, only with NTFS. And it doesn't search a word within files.

    Astonishing program!!!

    "Brilliant!"

    January 10, 2012  |   By JWAFrance

    Version: Everything 1.2.1.371

    Pros

    Now Google DesktopCouldn't possibly faster! Simplicity itself to install

    Cons

    What I really miss is the Google Desktop feature of tapping the control button twice to get the search bar and that doesn't appear to be available on Everything. The other thing I regret is the absence of being able to also search the web as I could do with G Dktop.

    Summary

    I have used Google Desktop for years and when I just tried to reinstall it I was horrified to discover that it is no longer available. If you try and download it from this site you get an error message although it shows several hundred downloads this week! odd!.. This is great but lacks the richness and flexibility of Google Desktop (see cons)
