Designed for the Windows operating system, the free desktop search software neoSearch
will help you to find anything that's stored on your computer.
The program spends most of its time hidden in the system tray menu so it does not take up valuable desktop space. Whenever needed, a compact window is brought up, fitted with a search field, as well as a list that displays looked up items.
It comes with a modern layout, making it enjoyable to work with. Moreover, the total amount of system resources used is nothing to be worried about, as well as the necessary space on your hard disk drive.
Sadly, there is no implemented hotkey support, which is a shame seeing how it mostly remains in the system tray. There is not even a minimized version to keep on your desktop and gets time consuming to bring up the main window every time.
Once the setup process is complete and you first launch the program neoSearch
can perform a total system index for quicker access later on. The full system index will take about a minute to finish. You are able to include or exclude folders from the search index. You can manually get neoSearch
to index your system, or you can set it up so this task is performed automatically. NeoSearch can automatically index your system on a daily, weekly, fortnightly, or monthly basis.
Result list is limited to six items, with no possibility to set the amount, making it almost impossible to find files with similar names. There is also no related details, only thumbnails and name being shown in the result.
This fast, free search software do a better job than the built in Windows tool, and it's definitely worth a look.
Download and install neoSearch
safely and without concerns.
