Winbindex is a searchable index of Windows 10 system files that are downloaded directly from Microsoft servers.
If you’ve ever needed and searched for a certain dll, sys or exe file, you know how hard it is to find them online. Winbindex allows you to search and download many individual Windows 10 operating system executables such as dll, sys and exe files.
Once a file name is entered at the site, results include the SHA256 hash of each file and can be filtered by version, update, architecture, file version, and file size. The “show” button displays the file and the "download" button downloads the file.
There are several types of files in the index that can be viewed like png, ttf, xml, cat, inf, etc., but downloadable files are limited to executables - exe, dll, and sys files.
The author indexed all Windows files which appear in Windows update packages, and created a website which allows users to quickly view information about the files and download some of them from Microsoft servers. The files that can be downloaded are executable files (currently exe, dll and sys files).
