April 7, 2010 | Filed under Software


There are times when you want to search for a certain item in a very long list such as in regedit, you can sometimes use the Search feature if it has one. For example, you want to edit a value for a registry value but there are a lot of registry names at the right pane. By pressing Ctrl+F, you can search for it and the item that matches the string that you search will be selected. Some programs that does not have the Search feature, you can use Listary to add a search feature to the application.

All you need to do is run Listary which it will hook at the windows that it supports and pressing the default Hotkey combination Win+W will open a search window allowing you to search for a string. By simply typing a few letters, Listary is able to show you if it matches any items and you can instantly select the items by selecting it from the list.
