      Google Desktop Search is a free search program that you can use to search your computer for documents and other files. It makes a small Google search box on your Windows taskbar and if you type something in the box it instantly finds files on your computer with those words.

      Google Desktop will search inside Word files, PDF’s, and even emails.

      It is constantly indexing your computer so it

      can find files much faster than the windows search.

      When I say instantly, I’m talking about less than two seconds to find any file on your hard drive.

        Google Desktop Search is faster than Windows search because Google Desktop indexes your computer, making a list of every file on the hard drive so that they can be easily referenced.


        I first downloaded Google Desktop my computer ran somewhat slowly as Google Desktop indexed my files.

        I could pause this process this at any time if I wanted to.

        The slowdown of indexing was the only drawback of Google Desktop.

        Google Desktop makes my computer significantly easier and more efficient to use because I can instantly find any file without having to look through all of my folders.

        I highly recommend it.
