Desktop Search Tools in Windows® 7
Desktop search is also called integrated search. It has the ability to simultaneously search multiple information sources typically, including corporate Intranets and Internet and databases as well as hard drives and removable storage on the user's system from a particular search word entered into a text box on the desktop. Desktop search programs usually create an index of files stored on the system which enables extremely fast and fairly comprehensive searches. The user can also search local hard disks, websites, e-mails and other sources without minimizing the current document or open a browser or e-mail client. The desktop search can easily make it possible to find data stored anywhere in the world that was connected directly or indirectly to the Internet. Users can search through various files on their desktops much faster and more thoroughly than they can with the search feature currently enabled in the Windows 7.
The following are some of the desktop search programs that are compatible with Windows 7:
- Copernic Desktop Search
- Google Desktop search
Copernic Desktop Search
The most significant feature of this release is its Windows 7 application compatibility. The Professional and Corporate versions are fully compatible with Windows 7 and users can easily search with the power of Copernic Desktop Search on their Windows 7 based computer system. Copernic Desktop Search is mainly designed for small and medium size business professionals and owners. Copernic Desktop Search Professional helps the users to quickly find everything regarding business - files, e-mails, presentations and more.
Google Desktop search
Google Desktop search is the only complete cross-platform desktop search application. The program searches and indexes your hard drive, e-mails, web history and more. The users can start a Google desktop search at any time by invoking Google Desktop floating search box. Google Desktop displays the extended results in the system's default web browser. The tool is firmly integrated with the website. Hence, when the users search for something on the website, the result page may display results from your computer and the web.
Locate32 desktop search takes a completely different take on desktop search than many other desktop search applications. Usually Locate32 only indexes the files by location and name. In this, users also have the option to search inside files from the advanced tab. But sometimes, most of the searches are limited to tweaking variables, like size and date. It is also capable of performing the searches very fast.
