Google Desktop: Useful App From Google

Google Desktop is one of those amazing little applications that you can have right on your desktop and it will deliver the latest news right to your screen. It allows you to search for anything from files to emails to chats and photos on your computer. It's as easy as typing in what you're looking for into the search box and voila!

So if your computer's files are in a mess and you have no idea where you put those photos from New Years, just search away! Once Google Desktop is installed, it begins to index your system. This is what allows it to help you find whatever you're looking for; by giving it a pathway to find the information.

Typing in the search box not only allows you to search your computer, but it allows you to search the web too! Google Desktop is a functional little tool with the power to transform the way you search for information.

It has little add ons called gadgets which allow you to add anything from Wikipedia to your email and everything in between. You can add as many as you want or as little as you please. The choice is yours and the choice is vast.

Another amazing thing about Google Desktop is that once your system is indexed and you accidentally delete a file, Google Desktop can try to recover that file which saves you from recreating the file from scratch. Sounds pretty useful when you're forever deleting files and then wondering where they are a few days later...
