People who regularly work at a computer know the struggle: you put hours of effort into a project or manuscript only to see it pushed back by other deadlines. Then, days or weeks later, you forget what name you gave the document or what folder you stored it in. Enough to make you want to give up and come back to typewriters.
Even the most organized workers can fall into this trap. And when they do, your operating system’s file explorer can be slow and cumbersome. Fortunately, there is an alternative specifically designed for busy multitasking: HoudahSpot 6.
With this app, you never have to worry about where you have stored an important document. The file finder is so intuitive that it is actually an organizational hub in itself, a place to find important files, regardless of their age or name.
The key to the software is an intuitive Spotlight index that lets you quickly crawl searches. In the most recent update, users have access to multiple search criteria at a glance, and previews appear in customizable columns. You can flag the searches you perform most frequently, and there’s even a plugin that adds email messages to your search.
The software saves a lot of time. PCMag readers can see it for themselves with a single user license for HoudahSpot 6, which goes on sale for $ 19.99, which is 41% off the MSRP of $ 34. And, enter the promo code VIP40 at checkout for an additional 40% discount.
