Listary Portable 4.20.1553

When it comes to searching for files, Windows’ own search utility is generally pretty effective, but Listary aims to make things even easier. The tool can be called up using a keyboard shortcut meaning that there is no need to explicitly launch the app, and it can be used to search any type of list, from lists of folders and files, to registry keys and much more.

Searching is performed in real-time, so as you type the first few letters of a file name or other item, suggestions will automatically appear ready for you to select. When performing searches, wildcards can be used if you are unsure of the precise name of what you are looking for.

Used straight out of the box, Listary is a useful and unobtrusive tool but you have the option of adjusting its on screen position and appearance. Whenever an Open or Save dialog is active, Listary is automatically on hand to enable you to quickly jump to folders without the need to manually navigate.

The portable version of the app can be installed on a USB drive and used on any computer, meaning that you can take advantage of the powerful search option wherever you may be. There is also a pro version of Listary available that includes a number of additional features. Listary Pro allows you to configure a list of favourite folders so they can be quickly accessed with a couple of key strokes – as Listary’s autocomplete also kicks in when you are typing, there is often no need to type more than the first couple of letters of a folder name before it can be selected.

Note that this is the Portable edition of Listary.
