Windows 7: How to speed up indexing

18 Dec 2019   #11

Win 7 Ultimate x64

I appreciate your help, but I'm not getting it. How do I run the program, specifically? Then, e.g. how would I index the folder "C:\!JL"? I entered it into the search box, and nothing happens.

You're looking at it all wrong. Once you launch Everything it will automatically index the whole computer and any drives attached to the computer. See screen shot. You see this verbiage very bottom left.

Now this doesn't work like Windows search at all. Say you want to find a cat photo. It could be in the My Pictures folder and it's named fluffy.jpg Just type in fluffy or fluffy.jpg and Everything will find it in a split second regardless of where it's at. Even if it wasn't in the My Pictures folder. Everything will find multiple copies if they exist. Then you can right click the file name and go to its path location among other things.

Make since?

Snick, thanks for your suggestion to use Everything. F22 Simpilot helped out. This tool is amazing.
