Fast & Reliable desktop search using rich file search attributes Zabkat DeskRule is a desktop search engine that locates any kind of files, (documents, photos, media, source code, etc) on your PC, quickly and reliably. Unlike other desktop search engines that are limited to simple filename or file content searches, DeskRule can search using any of the 300+ available system properties (individually or combined in complex queries), e.g. you can search for: * PDF/Office documents by Tags, Author or contained keywords * top Rated pictures * Music/Video tracks by Artist (ID3 tags) * photos shot in Australia (GPS geotags) * DLLs installed by Microsoft (Company) Here is an example of rich attribute search. Using a map helper DeskRule can find photos you shot anywhere in the world using geotags. If your pictures contain GPS longitude/latitude information, you can find pictures you did in New York or even in Central park. DeskRule complements and extends windows search (Cortana/Start menu). It utilizes the system search index for speed and has its own robust search engine as a backup, ensuring that if the document is there somewhere, it will be found for you. Except for regular filesystem folders DeskRule can search in most virtual shell folders (zipfolders, FTP, OneDrive/cloud etc). DeskRule can show a preview of the documents, pictures, media and other files found with all the attributes you queried for, helping you understand the results. It is fully shell integrated so you can act on the files found like in your windows explorer. DeskRule has a simple user interface, but also a lot of hidden power under the covers (wildcards, regular expressions etc). Use the on-board demo videos to help you make the most of the program. Our speedy customer support service will answer any questions you may have. Please help yourself to the fully functional evaluation version (FREE trial) and start finding your digital "needles in a haystack" today!
