Windows Shell Integration

In order to simplify execution of search operations, VX Search provides Windows shell integration capabilities allowing one to search files directly from the Windows Explorer application. Select one or more disks or directories in the Windows Explorer application, press the right mouse button and select the 'VX Search - Search Files' menu item to search files in the selected disks and directories.

On the search dialog, enter a file search wildcard and press the 'Search' button to start the search operation. Alternatively, press the 'Advanced Search' button and specify one or more file matching rules on the advanced search options dialog.

The last 10 file search operations performed through the Windows Explorer application are remembered in the locations and file wildcards history and the user is provided with the ability to select one of the previously entered locations or file wildcards using the history selection buttons located on the right side of the search dialog.
