Toshiba ReelTime™ is a graphical history/indexing tool that enables you to view recently accessed files in a fun and easy-to-use format. View and scroll through your history of opened or imported files via thumbnails in an intuitive user interface. Your ReelTime display can be customized to suit your user preferences.


Toshiba ReelTime™ replaces the old fashioned “hunt-and-click” method of finding your files with an visual timeline or “reel,” Now, instead of questions like, “Where is it?” you simply ask “When did I use it?” You’ll spend less time searching, more time doing and enjoying, and keep your day in high gear. Toshiba ReelTime™ shows a row of your most recent files as graphic previews at the bottom of your display, making it easy to see at a glance what’s there. Flick through your reel to find the file you need. Then, keep it handy by dragging and docking it nearby. A brush of your finger or mouse is all it takes. ReelTime simplifies searching by automatically tracking and indexing the documents and programs you open. It groups them and presents them as visual thumbnails so you can easily find what you’re looking for.


Toshiba ReelTime™ also lets you cut through the clutter by filtering out the files you don’t want, and honing in on the ones you do. Group your photos, files and clips by type or by program to look at last month’s book reports, queue up video clips for posting, or to prep for building another great photo album. For all the things you want to do, Toshiba ReelTime™ saves you serious time.
