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. Now Listary also supports searching and launching apps. 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 advanced search syntax, actions, theme support, and so much more!

Shazza Hi,

Seems like it could be a useful app. Can you advise whether it is a standalone windows executable or whether it installs other runtime libraries. I don’t install applications that use Java so that’s of specific interest.

Cheers

Hi, no extra runtime libraries are required to install and run Listary.

Gustavo $10 for this amazing piece of software is a steal.

This is excellent, Listary is simply one of the first software that I tell people on my suggestion list of what to install.

Been using it for 3 years already and still completely satisfied. Thanks!

franp User This is one of the first software I install when opening a new computer. Should be integrated in the OS (but no, Microsoft would break it). The Quick Switch feature alone is worth $50.

_*_ This is a daily use program for me. It instantly locates files as you type. It is simple, stable, unobtrusive, and wildly effective. Under $10 with Lifetime Upgrades is likely the best money you will spend on software this year.

Luis User I tried the portable version and really it doesn't impress me much. Probably I'm missing something but comparing to, let's say Everything. there are lots of benefits in favor of the later.

Gustavo @Luis

Then you are probably missing most of the features. I don´t know about the portable version, but on the installed one, it open with a tutorial, and that alone is enough to blow your mind. And even not all the features are shown yet.

See these videos to have a better idea:

John User I am a long time user of this great program. I recently purchased a new computer and am migrating my programs to it. I cannot find where to download Listary Pro. The trial version here seems to be Listary Free and I cannot find the Pro version on the website.

Where can I download Listary Pro as a lifetime licensed user?

Thank you.

Tortuga Hello all :)
For anyone using Everything, which I do EVERYDAY all-day-long, it does NOT do the same thing at all, even though both fall into the "Search" category. Both are very smart, but do different things.

This really is the most useful app !!
Been using it for a few years, have turned quite a few people into using it too ;)
The problem is, once one has used it for a little while, it's quite confusing when using PCs that do not have it installed :( It's just soooo intuitive & clever!
The Quick Switch alone is **ab-so-lu-te-ly** wonderful, so easy & practical!! Don't know how other people can endure all that clicking, when this is just so intuitive!

Can't say enough good things abt this app. At this price: GET IT !!
No, I don't work for the company, don't even know them, just love-love-love to use this :) :)

Hope this helps
Peace

Shazza I see that Listary creates what looks to be an index dB file in the users roaming profile. I’m my case this is on my SSD drive and I am trying to ensure that files which get overwritten frequently are not on my SSD drive. Is there a way (in the program itself - I know I could use OS junction points) to change this location so that I can point it to my non SSD drive?

Cheers

Listary Pro uses the same installer as the free version. You can open Options to enter your license info to unlock all Pro features.

That file is only read from and written to when you start and close Listary (i.e. when you start and shutdown your computer). So it's very safe to keep it on your SSD.

Shazza Thanks Channing Dai,

Good to know that my SSD is not going to be thrashed. I'm a developer and during the course of a day, my dev work will result in thousands of object files (all with a *.dcu extension) being created, overwritten etc. They will be in different folder locations on the disk. I'm not sure how Listary actually does it's indexing etc. so can you please advise
1) if this kind of file activity likely to result in a large index file, either on disk, or as it seems from your previous response "in memory"
2) I only look for these files once in a blue moon, so is it possible to exclude them from the index?

In addition to these files there are also a version history of backup files created every time I save a source file etc. so there are lots of files (with the same names, different extensions) that I would ideally like to exclude from the lists that I pick from. Any thoughts on how to handle these?

1. No. Listary only indexes file names and it keeps the index in memory while running. Those short-lived .dcu files have a totally ignorable impact to the index size and performance (it's just adding and removing some strings in a database).

2. Not recommend. Windows notifies Listary of file system changes on a whole partition base. So even if you exclude these files from index, Listary still get notified about them, then it has to filter them out which requires some extra work.

Shazza @Channing Dai

Thanks - The dcu files do persist until overwritten again, so if I could exclude them without a performance hit that would be ideal.

I have some unused disk space so could create a partition for files like this. If I excluded the partition, would Listary still get notified?

Channing Dai @Shazza

Yes, you can fully exclude a partition from index in Listary Options - Index without affecting performance. However there really is no need to do it unless you get many unwanted search results from that partition frequently.

Cary Adams @Shazza... I hear what you are saying about your SSD, BUT... the point of the SSD to rapidly handle files that are frequently overwritten (much like the Windows OS activity). Limiting your SSD to files that are infrequently changed forgoes the benefit of an SSD.

Worry less about SSD wear (today's units are remarkably robust); instead, consider the performance and responsiveness of your system as a whole. Indexing services like Listary are made for SSDs.

Ian User I've been using this tool for years. I actually have windows indexer service turned off on my old PC and I only use Listary Pro

As PCs get old Windows Indexer slows them right down.. and I simply don't need to do explorer searches at all with Listary running.. I'm not kidding.. its better.. faster.. and has a ton of handy options.

I need a copy of Listary Pro for my new PC.. and Bits delivered a half price copy once again ;) (I was loading software on it until 3am last night.. and intended to buy Listary Pro today.. thanks Bits!!)

If you code or have a ton of PDFs, pics, vids etc.. Listary will blow you away with how fast it is.

I create a couple Quick launches on my machines and make heavy use of the "SendTo" hack on Windows machines to quickly send files to where I need/want them.. add Listary Pro to your tool set and all those files (I have tens of thousands filed this way) are searched, found, accessed (or file location opened etc) in seconds.

It is my favorite utility I've ever used BY FAR!

Cheers!
Ian

Kevin D I see that Listary can export file and folder lists to CSV format. Can it also print file and folder lists directly? Thanks.

Channing Dai @Kevin

This is not supported. You need to export the list to a file first.
