Listary Portable

find-as-you-type search for Windows Explorer and more

Listary is an excellent find-as-you-type search utility that makes searching items in large unmanageable lists of Windows applications a breeze. It works with items in Windows Explorer, Task Manager, Registry Editor, Windows Desktop, file Open/Save dialogs and other components. Listary is freeware for personal use.

Listary Portable works best with the PortableApps.com Platform

Looking for Listary 4.0+? Listary 4.0 and later has a major bug that causes it to crash when run without admin rights. Most users won't have admin rights and admin rights should not be required of a portable app unless it is a Windows system utility that normally requires it (defrag, registry cleaner, etc). As such, we provide the last fully-working version of Listary to our users.
