Better and more powerful file search in Windows

If you want to search:

  • in multiple drives and folders simultaneously
  • for file(s) containing a word/sentence
  • by adding case-sensitivity to your search keyword
  • files created within a specific date range
  • and then export the results in a text, HTML, or Excel file

then read on…

With every thing going digital, the amount of data is exploding. With that is the importance of search. We all desire a more powerful search experience, not just on the web, but on the desktop too. Yet most of us don’t look beyond the default Windows search. In my opinion, search cannot get more dumbed-down than Windows XP/7 file search.
