Editors' Review

Virtually anyone who's used the built-in Windows search utility can tell you that it has a lot of room for improvement; it's slow and not particularly powerful, and finding needed files with it can be an exercise in frustration. Fortunately, there are plenty of alternative search options, such as Mo-Search. When we tried it, this easy-to-use program left the built-in Windows search in the dust, quickly returning relevant results while the Windows search continued plodding along at a snail's pace.

The reason that Mo-Search is so quick is that it creates its own index of your files, and this does admittedly take a while; the indexing process started as soon as we launched the program and took about half an hour. But once it was done, searching was lightning-fast. The built-in Help file provides information about search operators and filters for users who need more powerful search options but aren't already familiar with how to employ them. The results were displayed in a list that was sortable by name, relevance, location, size, and date modified, and in a pane below, Mo-Search displayed a preview of each selected file.

We do wish that the program provided tooltips for the unlabeled buttons on its interface; a bit of experimentation revealed that they represent such features as opening and e-mailing files and displaying file properties. One other drawback to Mo-Search is the necessity of reindexing every time new files are created, but this is a much quicker process than the initial indexing. Overall, we were impressed with Mo-Search's speed and thoroughness, and we recommend it.
