Editors' Review

Download.com staff

This search program works more like an Internet search engine than the Windows search function, finding words within files. Filehand Search lets you specify folders and file types to index. It supports the most popular document formats, including DOC, RTF, TXT, PDF, and HTML. However, its media-search capabilities are limited to MP3 files. The program can't index EXE, ZIP, or image files. Indexing didn't take much time in our test. However, our major complaint is that you can't filter, sort, or save search results. If you need to find a particular document whose filename you have forgotten but whose content you remember, Filehand Search might be worth a try.

Developer's Description

Search files on your computer and get results sorted by relevance, like with Internet search engines.

Filehand Search finds files on your computer the same way Google finds Web pages. You can search for Outlook e-mails and PDF, Word, PowerPoint, Excel, MP3, WordPerfect, HTML/MHT, and text files by content and by filename. The results are sorted by relevance. Filehand Search also displays text extracts of the files--even of PDF files--showing you the part of the file where your search term was found. The program has a dirt-simple user interface.

Version 2.1 build 351 features Outlook support and a simpler user interface.
