Hello!
I did a search for this software but I couldn't find it on the forum. I love this software. You just start typing at the top.It will find all your files and folders. It's like search in Windows but I think it's a whole lot better.
Try it out and see what you think or if you already have it please comment.

No I don't.

No, I don't feel the need for pinning it. Then we get into the debate of why one is pinned and not another and it becomes a popularity contest. Then people start choosing sides over getting their favorites pinned.

I hear you friend.I have a lot of favorites that I share with my friends. Search EveryThing is just one of them.I have every thing I need and seldom try any thing new any more. I'm sure you do also, so won't bother you with my Apps. I do have some good ones.
This is a great forum and I'm really enjoying myself.Thank you for your reply my friend. I'm really a good guy. just not always understood.I do have a way of stating what's on my mind, and that tends to get me in trouble some times.
Thank you my friend. You are very much appreciated by this old man!!

I agree....I've been using 'Everything' for ages, very useful and portable as well. Agent Ransack is another excellent Windows search replacement, been around for ages....still a favourite of mine tho.

There's a good list of search replacements on the link below....

It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.

I use AgentRansack at work for finding txt data inside my program files. I liked the old XP windows search but not so thrilled with the new Win 7 search. I do use it for some things. I have not spent a lot of time messing with it so perhaps I just have not figure it out yet, but have not been able to find files when I only know part of the file name. AgentRansack will do that., but it does not show results as you type like Everything does. At home, I don't often need to search for files containing certain text, but I do it a lot at work and AgenRansack is really handy for that. I went ahead and downloaded Everything and it seems to work great at finding files. Don't know if you can use it to find text inside a file though.

I started using Search Everything when I was using XP. The search function in XP could take a long time if I had to search the entire computer for something. It's much better and faster in Win7, but I got used to Search Everything so I still use it.

After I uninstall a program, I use Windows Explorer to show hidden files and folders. I then open up Search Everything, search for files and folders connected to program I uninstalled, and if any are found, hold down the CTRL key, click on the files to highlight them, right click, then delete them all at one time. No need to search out the files one by one to find leftovers from the uninstall.

Hello Queen Evie!!

No need to search out the files one by one to find leftovers from the uninstall.

I love it. That's exactly how I get rid of left over files after uninstalling a program.Now we have to get rid of the registry entries left behind.I have my way of doing that,but I can not discus that here on BC. I can get rid of all of them also with one click .I can use regedit to get rid of them one at a time. My program is not approved here on BC, but there isn't much left when I uninstall a program.Revo does a decent job in the registry but not good enough for me. I haven't uninstalled a program in a long time. I have all the Apps. I need and I'm happy with what I have.
Nice reply Queen. I like your style! :thumbsup:
