Windows is a great operating system that reasonably keeps its huge popularity, but this doesn’t actually mean that some of its features can't be considerably improved or even fully replaced by the opportunities of third-party applications.

For example, the default Windows file search function is known to be either too slow or not accurate enough. As a result, plenty of standalone applications have been developed in order to offer Windows users a faster, more precise, and more reliable file search option. Some of them were successful, while others were not, but a true fact is that none of them managed to make a stronger impact on me than the Lookeen program did.

Lookeen Desktop Search managed to stand out from all the rest of file searching applications by offering undeniable advantages. One of these advantages is the speed. Both the indexing speed and the search result displaying speed are better than those of any competing application I’ve ever tested. You will be able to save a lot of time if you decide to use this fast-working tool for the file searching needs.

Another benefit provided by this awesome tool is its intuitive and colorful interface. Lookeen Desktop Search is easy to use thanks to its neat and straightforward interface that allows even complete beginners to handle the program without any problems.

Lookeen Desktop Search is also very powerful tool as it offers plenty of useful additional functions, features, and options. For example, it incorporates extensive Outlook incorporation possibilities, being capable of searching your MS Outlook data as a plug-in for MS Outlook 2003, 2007, 2010, or 2013. It can also search on your Access shared documents, network files, Exchange server and is fully compatible with Citrix, VMWare, and Terminal servers.

Furthermore, Lookeen Desktop Search is capable of searching for strings and snippets of text within files and not only for files by their name. Advanced search queries used with various types of filters and wildcards are also supported as well as Boolean or proximity search queries. Images and some other file types can be previewed, and the search results can be sorted according to different criteria.

As you can see, Lookeen Desktop Search is a feature-rich and comprehensive tool.

To sum it all up, Lookeen Desktop Search has convinced me (and can easily convince anyone) of its capabilities and that it is the perfect desktop search solution for Windows.
