We've all done it before - built a folder that's so deeply nested it takes forever to drill down to it. Who knew that you would end up needing to access it so often? Moving the folder is impractical, because so many of your programs depend on that folder location. The best way to instantly improve your productivity, then, is to grab a copy of Listary Pro, available at a discount with today's software promotion!

Listary Pro gives you instant access to folders and files, no matter how deeply nested they are in your hierarchy. With Listary Pro you'll experience instant gains in efficiency and productivity as a single keystroke puts you exactly where you need to be. Not just for favorites, you can also use Listary Pro to quickly access recent folders and files, with instant access to the last opened file. A handy Quick Switch feature lets a file dialog box switch to the folder that you're viewing.

Has a forest of thousands of files, folders, and other entries taken over your hard drive? Thanks to Listary Pro, you'll now be able to find any file or folder, anywhere, as you type. You don't even need to know the complete file name! Just start typing what you can remember, use the space bar for wildcard, and BOOM, Listary Pro gives you exactly what you're searching for.

Bonus features include projects, actions, fuzzy navigation, and so much more!

Hi folks, please notice the movies below showing a few of the product’s features:

Loco78 * I have two licenses of this program and I wonder if I do not buy a third for the next laptop. This is one of the best software for finding and folders that I know I can not imagine working on the computer without him.

Harry Stadman Agree, best search tool around. A no brainer for this kind of money!

Also, the developer is very responsive and regular updates.

Glenn Crouch I've found this product to be very useful - highly recommended :)

Maz I highly recommended this product if you have lots of folders on your PC/laptop. It makes finding the file that i want easier. It will track the file even if i'm on the "Download" folder and the file is actually under "Download/test" (a subfolder of the main folder). I could bookmark my favorites too. Don't sit on the fence, you can't go wrong with this product. It's simply one of the best search tool. :)

Michael R. I have it bought at a former offer and like and use it a lot.

Is there a way to select a tool by entering letters, if the mouse is on the taskbar?
Often the desktop is invisible because of a big window in the front. But when moving the mouse down, some bars appear (taskbar, quick-launch, user-defined bars) - I have choosen the small icons, so there fit a lot of programs in there. So it would be quite useful to be able to quickly select a program in these visible bars by pressing some keys too.

Craig S. Adding my two cents. I also love this program. Such a time-saver. Saves me huge amounts of time and frustration drilling down with double-clicks in my file manager (Directory Opus, another app to scarf up next time it appears here). Love Listary Pro...jump on it!

_*_ Maybe I am missing something here, but I cannot seem to make this program work/popup/reveal itself...

I have installed given permission to start with windows, set its global hooks in to the system but when I am in Windows Explorer (I typically/rather use xyplorer) I do not see Listary at all.

Not sure what to do, or what I am doing wrong.

I have watched the short videos but they go by so fast as to what is taking place it is hard to recreate them.
I never see the Listary screens that it shows though.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Channing Dai @_*_

Just type something directly after opening Windows Explorer. Listary will show up automatically.

Listary also fully supports XYplorer.

Channing Dai @Michael R.

Listary 5 will add plugin support, and that would be a great idea for a plugin.

Cary Adams @_*_ There's different ways of making it happen. Do this. Click anywhere on your Desktop surface and start typing something related to what you searching for. A live search window should magically appear updating with every keypress.

Or... Open an Explorer window and double-click on any open whitespace. A different window will appear with access to your favorites, recently used, commands and options.

You should fund the app parked in your tray if it has been loaded.

I've had this for sometime, and am still learning how to take advantage of its features. Basically it is an awesome tool to quickly find your stuff. Yes, you can drill down in Explorer, but I've gotten lazy. I have files I update weekly, and I can type just a few characters of the filename and launch the file directly from my Desktop. FWIW, this is a filename search tool. It won't search for file contents (use Xyplorer for that).
Feb 21 at 5:53am Copy Link
_*_ Thank you all for the replies.

I am still encountering no response when I open Explorer, type directly on the Desktop, or type within xyplorer.

What does work is if I double-click on the Desktop, or in Explorer it will display a Favorite, Recent, Currently Opened, Commands, and Options dialog box.

I really want to try this out and buy it, but I am having trouble making it operate.

Nico Westerdale Great News! Bopsoft has agreed to extend this deal for another day - Enjoy!

Cary Adams _*_ ... If it's running you should see an icon in your tray that is similar to the one at the top of this page (with the magnifying glass). If you don't see that, run the Listary.exe executable in the install folder. You should also see ListaryService running in your services list.

If it still doesn't appear in your tray, you might try re-installing.

Roland Fischer Hello,
it seems that Listary does not 't work properly with the latest version 8.5 of Total Commander anymore.
Up to now I had no problems.
But may be it's only on my machine. Anyone else?
Btw. I love this nifty peace of software!!

Elizabeth Bright Does this work for searching network drive locations (NAS - mapped drive letter or not) that are not and cannot be indexed with Windows (7 Pro)?

Disco79 Hi.

I am currently evaluating this program and it seems good so far, but I have trouble opening the "favorite folders" directly from the icon on the taskbar. I fall all the time in the "my documents" and that's what the favorite is not pointing to. It's the same if I double click on my desktop and select a favorite folder. I am using Windows 8.0, Swedish version.

Bye bye

Harry Stadman @Elizabeth Bright,

yes it probably can since you can specify wich drives you want to index.

Channing Dai @Roland Fischer

Listary should support TC 8.5. I'll look into this.
Bopsoft - Feb 22 at 5:11pm Copy Link
Channing Dai @Elizabeth Bright

Yes. Listary can search mapped network drives. Just add it to index in Listary Options - Search.

Channing Dai @Michael

Have you changed the Default File Manager setting in Listary Options - General?

Disco79 Hi!

Thanks for the feedback.

No, I only use Windows Explorer. My problem is when I choose a favorite when I double-click on the desktop, or select a favorite directly from the Windows taskbar. I will then move all the time on "my documents". Windows Explorer is not started in any window. If Windows Explorer is running in a window, so do the Favorites work with double click. But still does not work the favorites from the taskbar.

Robert Bull @Roland Fischer, Channing Dai: Listary 4.10.1446 (registered) works fine for me with Total Commander 8.50 (registered), if you mean the ability to switch a File Open/Save dialog to the active directory in TC by Alt-Tabbing between them. I'm running Vista Home Premium, 32-bit, UAC On, user account. Listary is invaluable - my only grouse is it wasn't invented ten years earlier!

Harry Stadman Purchased my 2nd license for listary pro today. I use it for quite some time now and it is invaluable!

I think Channing Dai does a great job with listary pro and sales of licenses will encourage him to go on. Can't wait to see listary pro 5!

VLM Listary is one of the great products for Windows. It's just indispensable. Channing provides as good or better support than anyone, period--and I don't just mean software.

That having been said, I just discovered that the Listary Store apparently does not allow an https connection. Is this really true? Or perhaps one of my Firefox extensions is causing a hiccup?
Feb 24 at 2:28am Copy Link
Channing Dai @VLM

It'll change to https when you proceed to the order page.
Bopsoft - Feb 24 at 7:11am Copy Link
VLM Thanks Channing. FYI, more and more users are becoming aware of the extension HTTPS Everywhere, which can force sites that have https to use it. You might wish to update that front page to use https; I think it is becoming "expected" by many users. Just a suggestion.
