Here’s something that might help you as much as it helps me.
Google Desktop Search – HOOORAAAY! I downloaded this free tool on Saturday and am thrilled with the amount of time and frustration it’s saved me. Key a word or two and within seconds Google Desktop retrieves every file containing those words from email, chat, visited websites, and hard drive – all those Word documents and PDFs.
I work hard at staying organized, but I inevitably find I’ve forgotten that I filed something under some cute name I was sure I’d remember. And now I haven’t a clue. The search feature in Windows is truly a waste. But now – relief.
To reach the page where you can read about it and download the tool, go here: http://desktop.google.com/ Downloading is quick and painless. It sure made my day. In fact, it’s made my week. -- Ruth
