The built-in search feature available in the Windows OS platform is quite helpful when you are searching for files or folders. However, sometimes users could be frustrated when the searching process takes too long and the search yields no result at the end. Some users will probably opt for other search tools such as Windows Search 4.0 or Google Desktop Search. These search apps provide quite an easy and comprehensive solution to users to find the right files. Having said that, these utility tools technically consume quite a bit of your system resources, e.g. memory, disk space, etc and slightly slow down the performance especially if your computer is not that sophisticated or the latest model. If you need to find the right files regularly and are looking for a simple but powerful tool to assist, Everything is probably something you could give a try.
