DeskRule: A handy search tool that lets you search files using various criteria and even create custom filters

If the default search tool available in Windows Explorer doesn’t offer all the features you need, then you definitely have to try DeskRule. This powerful piece of software allows you to search files stored on your computer using a large number of parameters, either individually or in combinations.

You can use basic parameters, like the file name or last modification date as well as keywords or keyphrases included in the content, tags, file path, extensions and many more. On top of that, the application allows you to search files by comments, author, rating and other metadata, plus it relies on the Windows Search index to display results quickly.

You can set specific locations where DeskRule should perform the search which can be any folders located on your hard drives, as well as servers, archives, the storage of mobile phones, cameras and other external storage devices.

To create complex search rules you can use multiple criteria as well as wildcards and regular expressions to narrow down the results. Among the advanced search features, DeskRule lets you find audio files by tags, images based on GPS coordinated, keywords, comments and other filters. It also comes with built-in preview for documents, images and other file types.
