Many times you have tried searching for files and folders in your computer using windows in-built search. But have you ever thought that you can in fact search your computer the same way you search Internet through Google? Yes, it is possible.
“Everything” is a really simple freeware search engine that is capable of an exhaustive search in no time with loads and loads of features. The one thing that is so special about “Everything” is that unlike other traditional search engines, it first displays all possible files and folders in your computer and then you can filter only those things that you require. It maintains a database of all files and folders in your computer and whenever you want any specific file it will retrieve the results instantly. Many will think that maintaining a database of files and folders in a particular computer is a hell of a task but in actual “Everything” takes just the fraction of seconds to build its database. Believe me its real fast!
Not only this it will automatically monitor file system changes and will update its database accordingly even when it is not running. As I said before it is like a kind of Google Search on your computer. You can use Boolean operators, wildcards, regex etc. to search files which you intend to be.
