PROPDESC files are XML files that are created when developing Property Handlers for Windows Search. They are used to add properties to System schema that are not already included by default.

Property Descriptions must be saved in a global location and registered using absolute paths. This allows them to be referenced by the Windows Search and Windows Explorer property handlers.
