Hi John,

You might look at the X1 searching app. It's commercial but I think there's also a free version.

Hi, guys...part of my scope is to suck IT documentation in from the network
of as much existing documentation as possible, which I then submit for SME
review. I sometimes need to preview up to a couple thousand files once
someone points me to a hidden folder that only they know about till then,
and many times, the IT documents I'm interested in are mixed in with
financial, HR, etc documents, so I need a fast preview render

I've been using the Windows 10 Preview in File Manager, but we have some
formats that cause the File Viewer to hiccup.

What do you use that works better than the native Windows 10 File Preview,
if there is something.
