Yahoo Desktop Search Adds New Search Options

Some desktop search news to let you know about.

Word that Yahoo has just added a couple of new search options to their Yahoo Desktop Search (YDS) application. Along with the more than 200 indexable/searchable file types that are already part of YDS are two new indexing options. YDS can now index your Yahoo Messenger archives and your Yahoo Address Book contacts.

YDS can be downloaded for free here. For more about Yahoo Desktop Search, here’s a link to Chris’s SearchDay review from earlier this year.
