The Windows search tool is really useful when it comes to finding a certain file or folder on your hard disk. But the problem with the Windows search tool is that it takes up a lot of memory, as it indexes files and folders, to allow a faster search process. Besides that, search results are not always accurate and the user may need to repeat the process using other options and other keywords.

Fortunately, there are additional applications on the market which can replace and extend the functionality of the Windows search tool. One of these applications is Locate32. This Windows program is actually a simple and intuitive search tool which can help you find any file or folder in the shortest time possible, without even using any indexing service.

The program does not need installing and it's enough to run the executable file from the program archive. After running it, the user will be presented with an intuitive interface, which allows him to quickly learn the application's functionality. The first thing to do is to enter the name of the file or folder and, optionally, select the file type, to narrow the search results. After setting the search location, the process can begin and in the shortest time possible, the user will see a list of files which best match the search settings.

There are other search options that the user can take advantage of, for producing more accurate search results, like setting the minimum and maximum file size and also setting a date interval. By accessing the top menu of Locate32, one will be able to save the search results, fur future analysis.


It can successfully replace the Windows search tool, allowing you to find any file or folder much easier and quicker. Besides that, there are numerous search options which can be used for producing more accurate results. Furthermore, the search results can be saved as a file, for future analysis.


None I could think of. Locate32 allows you to quickly find any desired file or folder, by using a large number of search options.
