EasyFind free download for Mac
16 December 2020

File, folder, and text contents search tool.

Overview

Unlike Spotlight, EasyFind finds files and folders by name or content using advanced Boolean operators similar to DEVONthink and DEVONagent, wildcards, and phrases. It does not require indexing, is fast, and uses very little memory. Of course EasyFind doesn't just give you the files, it also shows previews and gives you many other options to work with them. And it's free.

What's new in EasyFind

Version 5.0.1:

This release brings support for Apple Silicon Macs. Markdown files are now included as a default type for content-based searches. Searching for multiple tags has been improved as well as the overall reliability.

NOTE: As of version 5.0.1, EasyFind requires macOS El Capitan or later.

NEW
  • Added support for Apple Silicon Macs.
Improved
  • Added Markdown file extensions to the default extensions used by content-based searches.
  • EasyFind shows an alert if the Automation system preference to allow controlling the Finder isn't enabled. Automation is required to use the Active Finder window location.
  • The dock icon now bounces when a search is completed when EasyFind isn't the frontmost application.
  • Revised tag matching to improve searching for multiple tags via the All Words option
  • Revised caching to speed up searching Finder comments.
Fixed
  • The menu item Columns > Name didn’t toggle the Name column. Fixed.
  • Searching the complete system volume on macOS Catalina and later didn’t ignore the /System/Volumes folder. This could cause duplicate results and slow down the search. Fixed.

Without doubt this is the "best" little finder programme. Never had any problem with it ever. Can't say more than that. And its free. 8 - )

The absolute best & most used application on my Mac, year after year! DEVONtechnologies has made (and updated) this gem for many years, and I'll never live long enough to tell them about all "The Thank You's" I own them!

A must have utility. I use it to clean system folders and to look for items in unindexed external drives.

MacUpdate's description is not updated when it currently says that version 5 dates from "18 July 2014". What downloads is version 5 dated 3 March 2020. This should be corrected so not to scare away people who (like me) will not download apps that haven't been updated for several years. Read more here: https://www.devontechnologies.com/apps/freeware

I've used easyfind for years... It's maybe a bit slow, but it's the easiest app that finds everything. No spot on your hard drive remains unsearched. System folders, libraries, invisibles, content... Finds it if it exists. No worries, no doubts. It's free, but if they charged for it, I'd pay whatever they asked.

Downloaded after a few days trying to fix the "find" function in my finder, and giving up in despair. Seems to work perfectly.

Finally a perfect searching tool for MacOS. Works like a charm and saved me hours of manually searching through my external drives.
