A small addon which improves Windows search functionality:

Previously called dsRun, Pretty Run is a small program that can search your start menu, desktop or any other folder for shortcuts.

For example, you know you have a calculator shortcut somewhere in your start menu you just can't find that shortcut very fast as there are too many shortcuts in your start menu. Run Pretty Run, type calc and Pretty Run will show you all shortcuts that contain calc.

With version 4 it supports magic words. You decide which words are shortcuts to your applications or web addresses.
