Easily run complex desktop searches with this powerful, portable tool

SearchMyFiles is a portable tool which makes it easy to carry out complex searches for files and folders on your PC.

You can search for files by wildcard, attributes, size, creation/ modification/ last access time, file contents (text or binary), and more.

Your search can be further modified in unusual ways. So you can choose to exclude particular folders or file extensions from the scan, for instance. You're able to set the subfolder search depth (available options are anything from 1 to 20, or "unlimited"). You can have the program scan NTFS symbolic links and junction points, or not; and in a click or two you can choose to search for files, folders, or both.

Surprisingly, the program even doubles as a hard drive cleanup tool: just choose "Duplicates Search" from the Search Mode list and it's able to find files which may be wasting your hard drive space. (Be careful before you delete any of these, though - duplicate files are sometimes necessary and removing the wrong ones can seriously damage your PC.)

SearchMyFiles doesn't index your documents, and so searches for file content, say, can be slow. It does make it easy to run searches which Windows just can't do, though, and as a bonus, the program is tiny and portable, so you can easily use it to scan any convenient PC for the files you need.

Version 2.82:

-You can now specify in the 'Excluded Folders' field a folder name without path.

Verdict:

A versatile tool which enables you to construct complex searches in just a few clicks

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
