Copernic Desktop Search Freeware I have just discovered a cool new indexing/search freeware application that you can use to search within the files on your PC. Copernic Desktop Search uses a small search box in your Windows Taskbar to search your PC or the web. It also indexes and search all your Outlook folders and contact lists. You can use Boolean connectors as well as nested searches in parentheses. A preview pane displays the full text of each document in the results list and highlights all search terms. Results can be sorted by folder name, date modified, or file type directly from the results panel. You also have several options to control the indexing process. Content can be saved as it is indexed, at a specific time, or at regular intervals. You can also selectively index folders. Download Copernic Desktop
