Very often, as part of our work, we have to find out a word that has been used in the documents, stored on our computer. SeekFast is a programme that can be of great help to everyone who needs to do this quickly.
Free and paid versions
First, it is important to point out that, as most of the other programmes, this one too has a free version and a paid version. A person who decides to invest money in this software (which costs 14 USD) will be able to use it throughout their whole life, plus he/she will get all the updates for free. In comparison with the paid version, the free version can search a smaller number of files, but it can be used freely.
What documents can be searched
SeekFast can search Word documents, which is really helpful for the millions of people who use Word on a daily basis. The search engine can also search PDF documents, but there are some things that have to be considered in this respect. The first one is that for the time being it can search only PDF documents that use Latin characters. The developers promise this shortcoming will be eliminated in the subsequent versions. The second important thing to be considered is that you can search only files that do not exceed the 3,3 MB limit. One the one hand, this could be a disadvantage for those who work with large PDF files, but on the other hand, this guarantees that your computer will not become slower in the working process.
How to use SeekFast
This search engine is user-friendly, because one can easily do whatever he/she wants to. Even beginners will be able to search Word documents or PDF documents. All they have to do is enter the word or phrase they want to find and choose the folder to be searched by using the Browse button. The other option is to right-click on the folder and choose SeekFast. I find the second option particularly useful, since it can save us precious time.
Moreover, the searched words are easy to notice, because they are shown in red. One can easily open the document containing the searched terms with a single click or see the surrounding text by clicking on the word in red.
Who can use this programme
This software is suitable for accountants, lawyers, teachers, journalists, translators, students, or practically everyone who regularly works with texts.
All in all, searching words by opening the documents on our computer one by one can be really boring and exhaustive. If you want to invest your time in something more productive, try using SeekFast – it works really well and quickly.
