The built-in Windows search feature often leaves a lot to be desired; it's slow, clunky, and not always very thorough. For occasional or inconsequential searches it's not bad, but users who are serious about finding particular files on their computers often turn to a third-party search application. If you're in the market for such a program, Super Finder XT is a great choice. This powerful program makes quick work of serious searches.

The program's interface is attractive and intuitive, with a design that's reminiscent of recent versions of Microsoft Office. We liked that Super Finder offers both Simple and Advanced modes, making it suitable for users of all experience levels. The actual search capabilities are impressive; there are many options for customization, including the use of wild cards, file name masks, and partial file names. Users can specify file characteristics such as size, time stamp, and other attributes, include or exclude subfolders, ignore the case of the file name, and much more. We especially loved the fact that the program can be quickly accessed from the context menu by simply right-clicking on any folder; Super Finder launches quickly and is ready to go. The searches themselves are surprisingly efficient; the same searches with the Windows search utility took longer and returned fewer results. Super Finder comes with a built-in Help file that could stand to be a little more detailed for total newbies, but most users should find that it provides adequate direction. Overall, we found Super Finder XT to be both easy to use and quite powerful, and that's a combination that's hard to beat.

Super Finder XT installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.
