Description

Old school search application for Windows 2000 and above, updated with lots of added features, but without the features you hate.

File Search Classic Web Site

Features

  • Fast & intuitive user interface. Does not get in your way.
  • Recall previous search file, text and path patterns separately.
  • (example: search the same path as yesterday but for a different file)
  • Direct Search; no indexing. Up-to-the-minute results, no annoying background tasks.
  • No phoning home at all, ever. Your recent search terms are stored, but they stay on your PC.
  • Custom File Viewer/Editor: override Windows' default double-click action.
  • Text Search with optional wildcards or (VBScript-style) regular expressions.
  • Search in multiple folder trees, with optional wildcards and exclusion pattern
  • Windows Explorer Shell functionality: dynamic context menu, drag and drop.
  • Special file patterns: for example, ">text" finds all "text-like" file types.
  • Exclusion patterns for files and folder paths
  • (for example, "*.txt|/junk" finds all text files EXCEPT those with "junk" in their names)
  • Works at low priority, so you can do other things while searching.
  • (search may be paused and resumed)
  • (partial results can be used while search continues)
  • (in other words, it's slow, but that's on purpose, I swear)
  • Did we mention there's no animated animals?
