Quick Search Description
When arranging files on your computer it is a little difficult to create a quick access point for everything you need. An alternative to this is to use a powerful search engine to get the desired item at a mouse click away. Applications such as Quick Search try to offer you a helping hand.
Find files from the comfort of your desktop
Running the application will bring up a small search field near the system tray. From here you are able to find anything on your computer in the blink of an eye. The displayed results can be filtered by categories to show only media files, folders or documents. Additionally, the basic filter options are available in the result list.
Go into full mode
The search field can be expanded by switching to full mode. This only brings up a window with several more options. You can set the application to automatically run on startup, and manage filter categories. Choosing to edit or create a new one will require you to give it a name and add file extensions by which sorting will be done.
For whatever the reason, there is an export options that will save the current list to a text file for later use. Furthermore, to allow easier access to the search field, you can bring it up by using hotkeys, but unfortunately, these cannot be modified.
Moreover, doing so will only bring up the application at the desktop level, so if another window is open it stays on top of the search field, making it a little difficult to handle.
A few last words
To sum it up, Quick Search tries to offer help, but also needs some. It finds any given file in no time, but overall the application feels slightly rough. In case you work implies opening a lot of files fast, this utility provides some comfort in doing so.
