Enables you to easily search, manage, view and edit your files and folders, while being able to synchronize with most cloud services
FileCenter is a complex software application, designed specifically in order to help individuals organize documents and directories from their hard drive, as well as manage their cloud from the desktop.
The interface is highly intuitive and has a modern design, built on several tabs, thus allowing users to easily browse through all the options available, such as the inbox, managing center, various file editors and a search function.
The latter tool enables you to look everywhere on the hard drive, according to user-input keywords, chosen file formats and created or modified dates. Results will be displayed in a list, along with details such as name, size, item type and path.
This software utility lets you toggle a file preview panel in any tab, therefore enhancing ease of use. Moreover, you can scan items to Word or e-mail, directly from the main window, as well as open, split, print and password protect PDFs.
FileCenter incorporates an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) function, which lets users transform scanned written text into a searchable PDF or DOC.
There is also a tab dedicated to editing TIFFs and PDFs. Here you can add a digital signature, rotate documents, take snapshots, highlight areas, cross out or underline text, attach other files as comments, erase items and use built-in stamps.
The settings panel lets you configure the startup view and number of maximum search results, choose a theme, show item count footers, force conversions to TIF as black-and-white, limit OCR to a user-input number of pages, and the list goes on.
In conclusion, FileCenter is a useful piece of software which does not put a strain on your computer’s performance. It is cloud compatible and there are extensive Help contents you can check out (video tutorials, classical files, tips).
