    I have a couple of them on here including Everything and never use them unless it's to locate a file some 3rd party if not Windows puts on. As far as the stuff I download as well as image files, video captures, pc game recording even at times, etc. I have separate folders or a main folder with several subs to keep things categorized.

    I agree.

    I too recommend Everything but it doesn't search file contents, only file and folder names
    I like Everything too, but I am also looking for a desktop search like the old Google Desktop search engine that indexes file contents. My Windows 10 installation used to do this but now it does not search local files, folders, or contents; it just finds applications and Bing results.

    I even tried installing the Windows desktop search version 3.01 for XP, but as expected it would not install on Windows 10.

    Windows 10 search does not work for me, but Explorer does find files and folders at least. I will use Everything until I come up with something better.
