Imagine being able to snap your fingers and instantly invoke any file, folder, program, website or even a clipboard item on your computer system! No more navigating through level after level of hierarchical folders, no more hunting for an executable file stashed in some illogically-named directory. Get whatever you want, whenever you want it. Is this some sort of mystical utopian operating system? No, it's yours, with a little help from RecentX!

RecentX can quickly find any file, folder, program, website, clipboard item on your computer, and its intelligent system of giving priority to recently accessed items makes it the fastest file search and retrieval system ever!

You don't even need to configure RecentX -- there's no need to feed it your "favorite" files and folders, just install the app and go about your business. RecentX automatically tracks and lists items which are frequently accessed, created, and modified, enabling it to learn which items are most important to you, and hiding everything else. Need to find something? Just start typing and RecentX will present you with matching items AS YOU TYPE, and will quietly hide itself when you open your selected file, folder, or application! Plus, RecentX can also index files & folders residing inside a folder on your LAN.

RecentX also integrates with Windows file open/save window. Browsing through this window and selecting any file is extremely cumbersome. RecentX makes this very easy. When the file open/save window appears, just go to RecentX window and select the required file/folder. The file open/save window will pick it up automatically.

RecentX remembers everything that you copy to clipboard. It is called the Clipboard History. Now, this is too useful.Just pick the text/image that you had copied an hour back and paste it again anywhere. You can also save frequently used text snippets (like standard email replies) inside the clipboard history itself.

With RecentX, you can even use tags to group multiple items from different folders together! Tags are the quickest way to get to any file, folder, clipetc on your hard drive. However deep it is. However old it is.

So, say goodbye to Favorites lists in your internet browsers. Bid adieu to fumbling through the Windows Start menu. Shout hasta la vista to having to use My Recent Documents. Today, there's a better way, and that better way is RecentX!

Please note folks: in the latest version 5.0, the search speed is at least 3x times faster than the older version. To see what's new in RecentX 5 you may browse here:

S User As long as there is no support for Opera and Vivaldi ... a no-go for me, personally.
This request has been made several times in the past... but still support for 'Internet Explorer'. We draw our Conclusion ...

Thanks @S User.

Even without the vivaldi/opera support, you will gain a lot by using this app. By looking at the missing 5% you are losing 95% percent of the benefits of time, money and effort saved. This is a magic utility. Don't overlook.

Mustang Nice software that does a lot, but I find the clipboard and browser bookmark features lacking when compared to more robust dedicated apps like Clipmate and Linkstash, I would love to migrate to a program like this that would eliminate my need for these specialized apps. Is there a road map link that shows planned enhancements?

d adams Any Plans to offer Copywhiz 5 here? If so, please let me know and I will be back.

Gautam Jain -
@Mustang. Thanks :) Yes. Clipmate etc are dedicated software for clipboard monitoring. RecentX currently has the most basic features required by a clipboard monitoring software. Yes, we do have plans to add advanced features. But unfortunately do not have a roadmap. You can disable clipboard monitoring alone in RecentX to continue to use Clipmate. So that you can take advantage of other features of RecentX. Go to Clipboard tab and click on Options button to disable clipboard monitoring.

Lifetime Upgrades Any time I purchase a software that I must pay to upgrade for major version, I would like to know if you plan to make a major upgrade within a 6 months to a year. If you do plan on a major upgrade within 6 months to a year, how much is the upgrade cost.

Thank you for your time.
Feb 15 2018 at 11:17am Copy Link
Gautam Jain -
No. We aren't planning any major version in next 6 months to 1 year.

The.upgrade price initially would be $14.95 like last time.

Tortuga @Gautam Hello :)
I have 2 questions
1. Do we have to uninstall an old version, before installing the new one ?
a) If so, is this valid for *ALL* major versions, or just when installing a new one over a very OLD one?
b) Can we save the old DBs, then integrate to the new vs?

2. I didn't realize there is a Portable vs (Yeah!!).
a) Can I put RecentX Portable on my PortableApps HDD & register it w my RegKey?
b) Does the Portable stay Registered, or does one need to re-Register each time one plugs the HDD into a different rig?

Thank you in advance for any help

Mary Wilson I have had this program for some time and like it. My only complaint is the clipboard. It is nice that it saves everything you copy. I don't like the fact that you can not edit the data that is in it. Would prefer that the clipboard worked more like EditPro as you can change and edit large amount of data.

Tortuga @Gautam
Regarding Mary Wilson post, I didn't know the newer RecentX versions also monitors the Clipboard (I still have an old version installed...)
I bought a dedicated app for Clipboard, so don't want any monitoring, interference or data accumulation for that.
Is it possible to turn it off ?
In fact, I would only want to monitor Files-Folders-Programs.
How can the others be turned On or Off, as needed.

Thank you

Thanks @Tortuga
RecentX installer will automatically uninstall the previous version while installing the new version. Valid for all versions. Major or minor. For minor updates, you can save the old DBs. Infact, newer version will automatically handle this. Whether to reuse existing db or create new ones.

Since the data in RecentX is all specific to local machine, it cannot be 100% portable. So for this reason, you will need to re-register on every system. Yes, you can copy on your pen drive and use it. But not sure how compatible it is with PortableApps. Haven't checked.

@Mary - Yes, I have this noted. You had requested the same last year. Thanks for re-emphasizing on this.

@Tortuga - Go to Clipboard tab, click on the Options button and stop monitoring clipboard. Website history also can be disabled from RecentX Preferences (Advanced menu)

Tortuga @Gautam Hello again :)
Thank you VERY much for clarifying previous queries !!
I haven't installed the nw vs yet, (will do this later today at home), so I hv more questions:
1. In older vs, in order for the window to stay on screen, instead of folding, one could tick 'Stay on Top' instead of 'Auto Hide'.
Been reading all old posts here, in .8.2016, someone says the window folds as soon as it loses focus. Is this option not available anymore?!
Also, instead of always staying 'On Top', is there a way for it to STAY on screen, but NOT *on top* of everything else?
If not yet possible, would you consider this request, please?

2. So, I am thinking my ideal setup is:
a) Install on the principle OS of my multi-boot tower, then use the Portable as/if/when needed, on the other boots or on my Laptop.
b) You said bc of the Data it collects on ea system, it cannot be 100% portable...
But, doesn't the app collect this data *inside* the portable folder of the Portable HDD in which the program resides? DBs of ea system on different folders of course (one for ea system). Do you mean the Portable vs creates folders in the OS's own 'Users' folder of ea system it visits?!

I've bought many apps that are Portable, I registered them once, it 'remembers', and it stays Registered no matter which system it's plugged in. Plus all Data created is all self contained.
It's very convenient indeed !! Please consider adopting this functionality.

Thank you in advance
