Out-Google Google with MSN Desktop Search

Think the Google Desktop is nifty? MSN Desktop Search leaves it in the dust and lets you fine-tune your PC searches to an amazing degree.

[Hack #45] shows all the ways you can use Google’s great desktop search tool to search through your computer in the same way Google lets you search through the Web.

Surprise! Microsoft has beat Google at its own game. MSN Desktop Search does a far better job of finding email and files on your computer because it hooks directly into Windows, Outlook, Outlook Express, and Microsoft Office and lets you search in ways you can’t with the Google Desktop. And it does more than that as well; once you find files or email, you can move them, delete them, copy them, respond to them—pretty much anything Windows lets you do. Google Desktop merely lets you view them.
