Quick Search: Much Faster Alternative to Windows Search

Looking for a much faster and easy-to-use alternative to Windows Search? Quick Search from Glarysoft is a good option. It searches everything stored locally on your computer when you enter key letters. It is similar to the search tool ‘Everything’ and displays results instantly in real-time.

Quick Search has two major controls - the search box and a displaying panel. When you type anything in the search box, the results screen will display related files instantly. Moreover, it will display all documents inside the selected folders that contain the search words.

In addition, it will create an index in the corresponding folders using relative paths, which make search over the data more quickly on any computer by copying it on a USB drive.

However, the application has no preview option, which is a helpful option, especially, when you search image files. Quick Search can be downloaded (3.3Mb) free at developer’s website.
