Fast files and folders search in Windows using an Everything alternative

We all like speed. But it gets annoying when simple tasks like searching for a file or folder on our system take a lot of time and effort out of our important tasks.

This article will tell you how to search for files and folders faster in Windows using RecentX and how it can be used as an alternative to Everything by Voidtools.

What is RecentX?

RecentX is a smart launcher for Windows designed to make your computing life joyful. Here are some of the many cool things you can do with RecentX:

  1. Effortlessly access any file, folder or program on Windows in less than 5 seconds!
  2. Assign tags to frequently used files/folders. Makes things even faster.
  3. Integrates with Windows File open/save window so that you don’t have to navigate any folder when opening or saving a document.
  4. It has a clipboard manager too that remembers all the text & pictures copied to a clipboard so that you can quickly pick & paste them again.

Searching using RecentX compared to Everything (Voidtools)

Searching for files: RecentX separates items on the basis of Files, Folders, Programs, Websites and clipboard. This way, the items are not mixed up with each other. This also narrows down the result list since you no longer have to search among unrelated items for the item you want.

File Document Launcher

Everything, on the other hand, does not separate files and folders and lists down every object in your system initially. There is a filter to only show objects of a particular type, which you can choose to separate these items.

Searching for folders:
Watch a short video on this feature of RecentX:

RecentX helps you avoid full folder structure navigation to access subfolders. As mentioned earlier, it separates files and folders. So now, when you want to search for a particular folder, go to the “Folders” Tab of RecentX and type in your search keyword in the text box given below. It will find an item in less than 3 seconds, no matter how deep they are located in your system. Double-click on the desired folder to open it immediately.

Folder Launcher

Everything has a folder filter. Using this filter, every folder on your system is listed down, and you then have to type the folder you are searching for. The indexing and search offered by Everything is speedy.

Note: With RecentX, you can even add tags to your files and folders for easy access later on. Learn more about this tagging feature from here :

Search in Recent items first

Since we open the same set of files repeatedly, finding only in recently accessed files and folders is more sensible compared to going through the complete hard drive. RecentX does precisely that for you. Items that are recently and frequently accessed are shown before other trivial items, thus making launch easier.

This is possible since RecentX automatically remembers your recently accessed files and folders. So you do not have to spend time configuring it with your favorite items as it is quite hard to keep updating a program with favorite files & folders.

Note: You can also search in all your items instead of just the recent ones.

Everything, on the other hand, has the option to sort items based on Dated Accessed, modified, etc. But sorting the items based on it is really slow, and the long list of items still remains, only that they are now in a different order which doesn’t make much of a difference.

As you can see from the above picture, the search results in RecentX have been narrowed down compared to Everything since we searched only in recent items in RecentX.

RecentX therefore proves an efficient alternative to Everything. The plus point is that there is nothing to learn. It is effortless and also works out of the box. Just install and see it working.

Have a good day!

    RecentX – An alternative to Everything

    This post will highlight the ways in which you can work with files and folders easily in Windows by comparing the functions of Everything by Voidtools and an alternative, RecentX.

    What is RecentX?

    RecentX is a smart launcher for Windows designed to make your computing life joyful. Here are some of the many cool things you can do with RecentX:

    1. Effortlessly access any file, folder or program on Windows in less than 5 seconds!
    2. Assign tags to frequently used files/folders. Makes things even faster.
    3. Integrates with Windows File open/save window so that you don’t have to navigate any folder when opening or saving a document.
    4. It has a clipboard manager too that remembers all the text & pictures copied to a clipboard so that you can quickly pick & paste them again.

    Let’s see how to achieve this.

    Select a file faster in the file open/save window

    The file open/save dialog window that is shown by all Windows applications is very tedious to use. RecentX makes it very easy to select any file in this window. When the file open/save window opens, find & choose the file using RecentX. The file name will be automatically displayed in the File Open/Save window, after which you need to click on “Open.” That’s it.

    File Open Save

    Everything: This function is not available in Everything by Voidtools. You can easily copy or move an item from one place to another but not open or save them from within the program itself.

    Quickly access files and folders by tagging them

    RecentX lets you tag any file or folder in Windows. Tagging files help you to access a group of files/folders etc. in a few seconds, however deep they are in your system. This feature can save a lot of time. You can also send standard email replies to your clients by tagging clipboard items.

    Tags

    Everything: It does not have a tagging feature, but it does have a filter feature to sort items according to their type.

    To learn about the RecentX tagging feature in detail, check out the following blog post:

    Search and access website history & bookmarks of all major browsers

    We usually don’t remember which website we browsed to find a particular content. RecentX serves as a log that you can access to check which websites you browsed so that you can re-visit them quickly. It doesn’t matter how long it’s been since you accessed the site. You can find it even after 1 month or 3 months or 6 months using RecentX.

    Internet History Bookmark

    RecentX lets you access website history & bookmarks from major browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, etc. on Windows.

    Tip: To find and launch a website faster, you can even create and use tags.

    Everything: With this, you can add a list of files as a bookmark to access the same files easily for future use. However, you cannot search or access website history from browsers.

    This short video will give you more clarity on this:

    Open a website in any browser

    Since RecentX shows websites & bookmarks from all major browsers, you can also open them in any browser of your choice – Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Internet Explorer, etc. The “Open With” option lets you open any web page in any installed browser.

    Useful for testing the same website in multiple Internet browsers. It comes handy when some sites work only in a particular Internet browser.

    Open With Any Browser

    Everything: This is again not possible to do with Everything.

    Conveniently access clipboard history

    RecentX remembers all the text & images that you copy to the clipboard. It keeps track of items as old as six months to a year and as new as something copied an hour back or a day back. Just pick them directly from RecentX when needed, instead of copy-pasting the same things repeatedly. This is simple and a real time saver. What more? You can even tag the clipboard history items to access them faster the next time.

    Clipboard

    Watch this short video to find out what more you can do with the Clipboard History Manager:

    Everything: This function is not available in Everything.

    Thus RecentX proves very efficient, productive and easy at the same time.

    Have a good day!

    Tag files and folders in Windows (Everything vs. RecentX)

    This article will tell you how to easily access files and folders by tagging them in Windows using RecentX and Everything by Voidtools.

    Why tag files and folders?

    We often find ourselves opening the same files and folders again and again for our work. Therefore easy and fast access to these files and folders is essential for work productivity. Setting up a tagging system is, therefore, a good idea.

    A tag is generally a keyword or a term that you assign to a piece of information like your files, folders, images, etc. This helps you easily organize your files and folders and helps you avoid multi-folder navigation, especially when your folder structure is so complex that it takes a lot of time to find files.

    What is RecentX?

    RecentX is a smart launcher for Windows designed to make your computing life joyful. Here are some of the many cool things you can do with RecentX:

    1. Effortlessly access any file, folder or program on Windows in less than 5 seconds!
    2. Assign tags to frequently used files/folders. Makes things even faster.
    3. Integrates with Windows File open/save window so that you don’t have to navigate any folder when opening or saving a document.
    4. It has a clipboard manager too that remembers all the text & pictures copied to a clipboard so that you can quickly pick & paste them again.

    Everything (Voidtools)

    Everything has a “Filters” feature. Using this, you can separate items based on their type like document, folder, video, audio, pictures, etc. and only view files of a particular type according to the selected filter. For example, when you select the “audio” filter, all the audio files on your system are listed down. You can then search and access your file from this list.

    RecentX

    Watch a short video perfectly depicting this feature:

    RecentX enables you to find files and folders in a more meaningful way by letting you tag them. These tags let you categorize files, folders, apps & websites based on categories, file types, projects, etc. for easy access in the future. You can even add multiple tags to a particular item.

    These tags can be of two types:

  • Regular tags
  • Smart tags
  • Regular Tags

    Tags assigned to specific files are Regular Tags.

    Say, you have a file, “Orders”, which you update every day. You don’t have to go to the file location repeatedly to access it. Just tag the file as anything you want. Ex: docs, important, etc. So the next time you want to open it, type the tag in the RecentX search window, and a list of all files with the mentioned tag will appear. Just a single click and your file opens instantly. This is easy since you can enable search only in “Recent” items instead of all files and folders, thereby narrowing down the file list.

    All your tags show up on top in the tag toolbar so that you don’t even have to search for the tags. This is also helpful when you have lots of tags, and you don’t remember what tag you had assigned to a particular file.

    Regular tags are in blue.

    Tags

    How do i add a regular tag?
    This is very simple. Right-click on the item you want to tag and select “Tag” from the options.

    Assign-Tag

    A “Tag” Window will open where you can type in your tag(s).
    Note: If you want to add multiple tags, separate them with a comma (,).

    Tags

    Can i edit my tag later?
    Yes. Editing tags is as easy as adding tags. Right-click on the tag name in the tags toolbar and edit the tag.

    Quickly-Edit-Tag

    Is it possible to delete a tag?
    When you no longer need a particular tag, delete it by selecting it from the tags toolbar on top.

    Quickly-Delete-Tag

    Smart Tags

    Tags assigned to a specific type of files or folders (based on keywords) are Smart Tags.

    Smart Tags in RecentX let you save keywords that you frequently use to search your regularly accessed files and folders. Ex: “pdfs” for your PDF files and “docs” for your word documents. Typically, if you would type .doc, all the files having .doc in their name would be listed down. But when you click on the docs tag, only files given this tag are listed, so you don’t have to scroll through a long list of files. This is similar to the filter feature of “Everything” listed above.

    These smart tags are listed in the tags toolbar in Red color.

    How do i add a smart tag?
    Click on the Tags button located on the top left of your RecentX window. Select the option “New Smart Tag”. Type in the tag name(s) and the keyword(s) for the tag in the smart tag window that opens.

    New-Smart-Tag

    How do i edit this tag later?
    Editing smart tags is the same as editing regular tags. Click on the Tags button on the top left of the RecentX window, click on the Edit Tag option and select the tag that needs to be edited from the menu.

    Edit-Smart-Tag

    Or you can just right-click on the Smart tag name directly from the tags toolbar and edit it too.

    Edit-Smart-Tag

    Can smart tags be deleted too?
    Yes. Deleting smart tags is easy, just like regular tags. Right-click on the tag name directly from the tags toolbar and delete it.

    Delete-Smart-Tag

    RecentX therefore comes very handy if you access the same set of folders each day for a particular project. Not only is this fast but also easy and fun. This feature is rarely available in any other file launching program.

    Change Windows Sticky Notes Font

    Windows uses the Segoe Print font. Changing the default font is currently not supported in Sticky Notes. You will have to type your text in the desired font in a text editor like Word, and copy-paste it in your sticky note. This might help you get the font you want.

    But this is an unneeded task. Why waste time doing this when you can directly format text from within the note itself in Notezilla.

    Text formatting in Notezilla

    Here is a short video perfectly depicting this feature:

    Notezilla provides varied options to edit a sticky note. It supports text formatting features like :

  • Change font (type, size,color and style)
  • Add bullets & numbering, outlining (multi-level bullets & numbering)
  • Count words and characters

  • Paste as plain unformatted text
  • Automatic spell-check
  • Checklist feature
  • Find text inside a sticky note
  • Undo-redo
