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:

I tried to test the portable version on a win 7 machine and got following errors:
Cannot find


Please reinstall the application.
Any ideas what to try next?

Hello Kelly,

Go to Clipboard list and click on Options button to disable Clipboard monitoring.

@Geo, I will check and get back tomorrow about the error. Meanwhile you can try the installer version to check if you like the software. The portable version doesn't sync the data because RecentX data is specific to the system (except clipboard data). Although it is called portable, the data is still stored on the system under AppData folder.

@Geo, since portable and regular installer uses same location (AppData) for data, whether you run portable or regular installer, RecentX will show same data.

RC RecentX is a very useful must-have utility, just purchased a second license so I can install it on all my machines.
