InSight Desktop Search Review

Tina de Pierre
Super-fast Desktop Search
A review of InSight Desktop Search by Tina de Pierre

Sometimes, the built-in search feature of Windows just doesn't do enough and when it does, it isn't fast enough for versatile enough for power users. That's where InSight Desktop Search comes in handy with its ability to index multiple hard drives with Google-like search features like "-" to exclude words, " " to include them and using AND or OR for more refined boolean searches.

What's great about Insight Desktop Search is that it's super fast and indexes files within minutes without really putting strain on your PC. It includes quick previews with small thumbnails of different types of files.

The advanced search functions of this engine makes InSight stand out and as always, we're thrilled that it's freeware. It can even find Wikipedia entries and installed applications.

InSight Desktop Search features and highlights:
  • Easily Search For Files/Folders across HDD
  • Support for shared Network Places
  • Support for Metadata
  • Dedicated Music Search and Playback
  • Search Outlook Emails and Contacts
  • Search for articles on Wikipedia
  • Quick Launch Shortcuts
  • Small Index size and Live updates
  • InSight Preview
  • Quick Disk Indexing Speed : 1-2 minutes
