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. It features:

  • Smart Search - Find-as-you-type search list that narrows down real-time as you type any part of item name.
  • Wildcards - Find-as-you-type search using wildcards like '*' and '?' in the traditional way.
  • Shortcut to command mode - Simply type /cmd to enter command line window in the directory you are presently in.
  • Hotkey - Press only Windows+W to start Listary. Customize shortcuts to select items from large lists.
  • Nifty UI - Neat tool sitting in system tray, showing only a search bar that disappears upon 'Esc'.
  • Traditional search - Find-as-you-type search list that narrows down real-time as you type item name in exact order.
  • Text editing - Edit text anywhere with your favorite text editor.
  • Auto-complete - Predicts what you want to type and auto-completes the search-string with just a few tabs.
  • Regular expressions - 'Regex': Powerful, flexible advanced search method for matching strings of text.

App Notes

Looking for Listary 4 or 5? 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.
