Find that file with TheSearchMan

How many files do you have on your computer? Even if you disregard the zillions of files that Windows puts out there, when you add up all the applications and data you've got on there, it's a wonder you can ever find anything. Windows has built-in search capabilities, to be sure, but it would be nice to speed the process up a bit, letting you find what you need and get back to work, instead of just twiddling your thumbs.

TheSearchMan is a tool that helps you to speed up this process. Tell it where to look—give it a drive letter or a folder to start in, or even "all" if you want it to scour your whole system—and a file name, and let it go. It supports Windows wildcard characters, so you don't have to remember the whole file name to start looking. And it supports "search within search", so you can further narrow your results. It's small and fast and may be just what you're looking for.

TheSearchMan is a free Windows download. It comes in a .RAR file, so you'll need to be able to decompress that archive to install it.
