Microsoft Introduces MSN Desktop Search

Microsoft introduced the final version of its MSN Search Toolbar with Windows Desktop Search, a suite of tools that helps people rapidly search across the Web or their PC and provides easy access to MSN services. The new version supports more file types and offers additional privacy and customization.

The MSN Search Toolbar, available for free download at, enables people to search their desktops from within Microsoft applications they use every day—including Microsoft Windows Explorer, Internet Explorer, and Microsoft Office. Users can search more than 200 file types on their PCs, including Outlook and Outlook Express e-mail files and attachments; Outlook Contacts or Calendar files; multimedia files; Microsoft Office Word 2003, Microsoft Office Excel 2003, and Microsoft Office PowerPoint 2003 files; MP3, GIF, and JPEG files; Adobe or PDF files; and more. Searching is also efficient with search-as-you-type functionality. People have the ability to select what information gets indexed and the types of files that are searched.

Microsoft is developing a desktop search offering, built on Windows Desktop Search, for the corporate environment. It is scheduled to be available in beta form by the end of the calendar year.
