Personal favourite software: Everything

It’s not a secret that the built-in search engine in Windows is just bad at it’s job. It’s slow (sometimes even horribly slow) and you often can’t find the file your looking for. I dislike it.

So, I have looked into better alternatives. And found a gem that I want to share with you.

Everything.

Everything is brilliant.


Everything, by voidtools, is a search tool for Windows. It’s easy to install, has a simple and clean interface, indexes quickly and it’s just brilliant in searching for file and folder names.

Everything has advanced search and also supports regex.

I wholeheartedly recommend Everything.

Everything can search file contents, but file content is not indexed so searching content is slow.
