Sometimes while you are using your PC, you need to open a file or program but simply cannot find it. The usual solution is to use the native search feature in Windows but if you are looking for a quicker and more convenient solution, check out an app called Pipy.

With the app open you can type in the name of the program you are looking for and it appears. If you see a bunch of options, you can either click on them to open them or use the keyboard’s arrow keys to reach your desired result.

    Would this search outlook pst files? There don't seem to be any other options besides Lookeen (which, while great, is beyond my price range).

    So let me get this straight - at the moment I click on the windows start icon in the system tray, type in the name of the program I want and click on it. With this program, I click on the icon in the system tray, type in the name of the program I want and click on it.

    This is "quicker and more convenient" - how much are you getting paid guys?
