In order to find files and folders quickly on your hard drive, UltraSearch directly accesses the MFT (Master File Table) of local NTFS partitions. Administrator privileges are needed for this. As a consequence the User Account Control (UAC) is displayed. You can skip this dialog by disabling 'Skip User Account Control Warnung' via 'Options > Application'.

If you want to search for file content, use the prefix cont: or content: , for example:
to search all files with the word "license" in its content.

If you prefer to use separate input fields for entering file contents as in earlier UltraSearch versions, you can also use the Query Composer on the 'Start' or 'Search' tab.

The full text search is time-consuming. It is therefore recommended to use additional search criteria like file name or file extension.

You can start UltraSearch directly with the operating system via 'Options > Application > Launch at Windows startup'. UltraSearch is then always available from the notification area on the right side of the taskbar.

The key combination 'Ctrl + Shift + U' can bring UltraSearch to the foreground at lightning speed and you can start your search without delay. You can change the key combination for launching UltraSearch at any time under 'Options > Application > Select hotkey'.
