Windows Search 4.0 can be considered an upgrade of the well-known Windows Desktop Search 2.6 (WDS). With it you can search whatever you want on your computer namely: documents, files, photos, videos etc with a couple of clicks. Windows Search 4.0 is a very useful program because it integrates itself in the whole Windows Operative System and its software. As a matter of fact it is used by Microsoft Office, Outlook 2007, Microsoft Office, OneNote 2007 to search for documents and files. But let’s see together its important features:

  • Improved and better features.
  • Query response time about 33% faster than search queries in Windows Vista RTM.
  • Remote Index Discovery for PC-to-PC search to work on every supported version of Windows. This makes finding information on other PCs running Windows Search 4.0 quick and less resource-consuming. Now Windows Search can find information shared on a remote PC by accessing an index on that PC, and you will open files only when relevant to your search.
  • Rollback Recovery where your search index will roll back to the last known good state.
  • Improved performance when indexing Exchange in online mode, sending fewer packets and making less RPC calls, with significantly less load on the Exchange server too during the process.
  • Support EFS – Windows Search 4.0 will index encrypted files, and user can search for them in the sane UI and through the same user experience as seen with regular, unencrypted files.
