"Search and find files in windows in seconds."

What do you like best?

A very useful tool, the truth I know recently, and I was surprised by the use, which can be given in windows, usually took a long time, trying to find some file in specific, since having many folders and partitions in my equipment, it was almost impossible to find what you needed, with this application, you should only have a reference of the file you are looking for, and find absolutely everything related to that file which avoids a lot of time in manual searches, the application is light, it weighs only 4 or 5 MB, and you do not even notice that you install it on your computer.

What do you dislike?

The application forces the operating system to boot from the start, I've had to disable it a couple of times, from the task manager, and force the shutdown at startup to prevent it from starting along with the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Saving time, when you need to look for a specific file.

"Find any file on your PC easily with Listary.!"

What do you like best?

This software is incredible, it greatly facilitates the searches of files inside our computer and this is really useful especially when we have our hard drive full of files of all kinds that have accumulated over the years.

Listary is very light and easy to install and almost does not consume resources from our computer, searches are usually very fast and we can see the results as we type.

From any window or folder we can search in all disk units, the results are displayed instantly and by right clicking we can see all the action options that we can execute for that search result, within which we can send by email, copy, cut or move to another location, also if we find a software allows us to install it directly.

We can create shortcuts with the combination of different keys to execute different actions.

What do you dislike?

I have no complaints about this software has really been very useful even its price seems accessible to me.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This software is simply great, it is light, it is installed very easy and it is simple to use and its price is accessible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have saved a lot of time in the search of files, previously I used the tool of searches of windows but this one is very slow in comparison with Listary.

What Desktop Search solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"With Listary, you never have to go through the tedious process of examining folders to get the file."

What do you like best?

Best of Listary is that it makes available to its users a search technology that helps quickly find any file you need making few keystrokes also lets you create a list of favorite files and applications commonly used for quick access. The search time is quite short all you have to do is start writing and Listary will know depending on the context if you want to search or not.

What do you dislike?

The free version does not have some advanced features such as project-based search, fuzzy navigation that can find files no matter where they are, also does not have its own interface which may be uncomfortable for some users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The free version of Listary is a very complete and always available function, but if it requires more advanced functions there is a Pro version that allows it, only to be able to count on this version it is necessary to pay for it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows you to create a list of favorites of commonly used files and applications for quick access by quickly scanning the history of recent applications and files to continue working where you left off, as well as making the experience of managing files more pleasant. Listary includes a set of features that greatly improve working life.

"The best file search engine for your computer"

What do you like best?

One of the features that is more attractive to me is that it shows you its search engine from the root files and folders matching the one you are looking for quickly. Sort the files into favorites to review them later when you want and even configure quick access keys. Performing web searches is an added value that makes this tool one of the best

What do you dislike?

I really have no complaints or negative aspects to add, however it would be great if there was a version for mobile devices

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have been allowed to recover budget files from previous years in a quick way, keep the location of the files saved in favorites, which has made our document searches much faster, we have been able to make the planning and budget reports of the last 5 years thanks that we have got the files with this powerful application

"The most convenient way to search a file on your PC"

What do you like best?

In my work I must manage a large amount of information, I have dozens of files in different folders and I must constantly consult the information contained in those files. For that I found a quite friendly solution, this is Listary, a tool that allows me to search and find files very easily and quickly and move them from one folder to another in a matter of seconds.

Listary has many features among which I can mention "find as you type", a function with which you can find documents only by typing a letter or word of the file name. The program will immediately show all the matches for the file and highlight the file. The best thing is that you can continue navigating through the file just by clicking on it.

The program also allows you to execute other functions from the keyboard. What I like is that you can do too many commands, it's as if you always find the quickest shortcut to reach the content you're looking for and to execute the actions you want to do with it.

What do you dislike?

The truth is quite simple, I find nothing negative to say about it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It allows me to save time and make better management of the files on the computer.

"Easy to use, big improvement for Windows 10"

What do you like best?

My husband and I didn't like the new windows explorer when we upgraded to windows 10. Listary makes it a lot easier to search and find and even select and open files and programs faster. It eliminates unnecessary steps making your work quicker and more efficient.

What do you dislike?

I thought the tutorial was helpful but didn't explain how listary runs. I kept thinking I needed to open it myself and then it would prompt me "listary is running in the background". Then why did it add a desktop short cut? I eventually figured out it runs within Windows explorer, not separately.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you recently switched to Windows 10 and found yourself frustrated with Windows Explorer, listary would be a great option to help make it more efficient and easier to use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's faster and more efficient to get work done. When we are working with documents and art files this is a quicker way to find what we need and get on with our work process.
