Everything is little, but useful software to search files and folders on a Windows computer instantly. Everything is a must have windows utility that can help you easily locate any files or folders in your windows PC on real-time basis.
“Everything” only uses file and folder names and generally takes a few seconds to build its database. A fresh install of Windows XP SP2 (about 20,000 files) will take about 1 second to index.
However, note that “Everything” does not search file contents, only file and folder names.
To start searching, type the partial file or folder name into the search edit, the results will appear instantly.
“Everything” will run on Windows 2000, XP, 2003 and Vista and Windows 7. There is also a portable version of the software available that can be used directly from a thumb drive without any installation.
