Everything is a local search tool that works a bit faster than the original Windows search tool.
Windows has a lot going for it and virtually defined what the Internet is today for many users. That doesn't mean everything about it is perfect. One particular feature of Windows that found itself on the receiving end of many complaints is its local search tool. It's not always easy to find things on your comp using Windows search. Everything is a program that seeks to improve upon the local search offered by Windows.
First things first: It's super fast. A local search shouldn't take a very long time. Thankfully, Everything makes it even faster than the native search tool that comes with Windows. It's as simple as the original search tool as well. Simply type in what you're looking for and wait for the program to work its magic. Search engines have been in use since almost the dawn of the Internet as we know it. If you know how to use a search engine, you can use Everything.
The installation is incredibly fast, too, as this is a lightweight program that isn't going to take up a lot of space on your machine. But what truly sets it apart is the ability to search remotely from another device. It doesn't matter what device you're on, you can set Everything up to search your desktop and help you find what you're looking for. This increase the risk of security issues, though, and so it's one of those programs that many people skip over. Maybe they shouldn't. This is a neat little program and Everything has worked hard to perfect any security issues.
