Find and Run Robot 2.229.1
Track down files and program in an instant with Find and Run Robot

As hard drives have become larger than ever and computers are used for ever more tasks, the number of files the average person stores has increased exponentially. Keeping files organised into folders is one way to help ensure that you know where to find everything, but a search tool is always handy for those occasions when you just cannot remember where a particular file was stored.

While Windows includes a files search tool of its own, it pales into insignificance when compared to the power of online searches provided by the likes of Google. Find and Run Robot (FARR), is an advanced Windows search tool that closely mimics the speed and features of a web search engine.

Accessed via a keyboard shortcut, FARR is always on hand whenever you need to track down a file. Fire up the program and start typing the first few letters of your search terms - FARR will immediately start to display a list of results as you type. This is a hugely customisable program and you have the option of settings everything from which file types and folders should be included in searches to changing the appearance of results.

Your searches can be saved and cached so that repeat searches can be performed faster, but the real beauty of the application is that it can be extended through the use of plugins. There are a large number of extensions available for FARR that are completely free of charge and these can be used to add a range of features to the tools - including plugins to add browser support and much more.

With great support for keyboard shortcuts, FARR can even be used as a program launcher and is ideal for anyone who prefers to navigate their computer using the keyboard rather than the mouse.

See the changelog for update information.


While it may be difficult to get excited about a search tool, FARR is impressive enough to make you think twice.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
