About Everything

Everything is a fast search software for files and folder names. Before searching, it will list all the files and folders used, which is different from the search system that comes with Windows, so it is called Everything. Enter text in the search box and it will only show filtered files and directories.

Everything FAQ

  • Yes, Everything is a free program for Windows. The company that develops it accepts donations, but you can enjoy its search features completely free of charge.

  • Yes, in addition to searching files and folders, Everything can search the contents of files as well. However, this search is slower as Everything does not index the contents of the files, so it has to search each of them individually.

  • Yes, it's possible to add networked units to Everything. To do so, go to Tools > Options > Folders. There, you can add the network location you want to index and search for files on it.

  • Yes, Everything is able to detect when you delete or add a file, as well as when you remove or add it to the database. To do so, the program has to be open in the background, but it doesn't consume much RAM.
