Windows: Everything, one of our favourite desktop search tools, just updated for the first time in months with new features that will make finding lost files on your system easier. You can now filter results by type from a drop-down menu, and create custom filters and keyboard shortcuts.
Everything seemed like it had dropped off the face of the earth for several years, but we got a new beta a few months ago, and now the developer has released a major update, packed with new features and designed for newer operating systems. The drop-down filter on the right side of the screen was a long time coming, and it lets you quickly search and filter results based on file type. You can also create custom filters, macros and keyboard shortcuts for those filters to make your searches even faster. Those filters can use regular expressions, or you can use Everything's own search syntax, which has also been vastly improved.
Ultimately, the new version of the app keeps everything we love about it, and it adds some more powerful search features that will make it easier to unearth files you've long lost on your hard drive or buried in a Dropbox folder. There's even a 64-bit version now. Best of all, it's still free. Hit the link below to grab the new beta.
