When working with a wide range of files on a regular basis, it might be quite a hassle to find the one document you are interested in without wasting a lot of time. KonanLink is one of the apps that can help you speed up this process since you can use it to search for specific files within seconds.
To make sure the utility runs without a glitch on your computer, you first need to make sure that Java is already installed. Next, you need to create an account or log in to a previously created one.
Once this step has been completed, you need to choose a name for your current PC and the app offers a few suggestions - you can either go with one of them or enter a custom name.
The GUI is meant to be as intuitive as possible, yet you need to wait a few minutes until all the files on your PC have been indexed (until this process is complete, you only get partial results).
You can start looking for files by entering a keyword in the dedicated field, then browse the relevant items. Unlike other similar apps, KonanLink does not examine only the files' names while performing the search, it also analyzes their contents and displays the items that match the criteria, thus yielding more accurate results.
You can customize the functions of this software solution by specifying which folders you want to search through (by default, all directories on your PC are indexed). You can also add IMAP email accounts, along with Evernote, Dropbox or Google Drive ones.
Additionally, you can narrow down the results list by selecting only the types of files you are interested in, such as videos, images, songs, emails, documents, compressed archives or other formats.
All in all, KonanLink comes in handy when you want to search for one or several files without spending too much time. Since it looks for emails, office documents, multimedia and other types of files stored on your cloud and local accounts alike, it can help you improve your productivity in the long run.
