Everything

Get Everything (and faster). Everything is a super-fast desktop file-search that integrates in your right click context menu. What makes Everything better is that it is able to bypass Windows on your desktop or laptop when searching which makes it faster to find your files because it does not scan the hard drive. Everything uses the raw Master File Table for NTFS drives, which logs all changes made on the partition and gets straight to the files you want faster and with stability.
