Finding Files And Folders


Step 1

Go to Start > Find > Files or Folders


Step 2

A "Find: All Files" dialogue box with 3 tabs will appear. Select the Name & Location tab. You can now search for any file on your computer by typing in the name of the file. The closest matches will be shown if you enter part of the name along with details such as the size, location and date modified.

E.g. Say there are several image files with the word "xmas" in the title but we cannot remember the actual name of the one we are looking for. We type "xmas" into the Named box and click on Browse to select the location where you want to begin your search. If you are unsure of the exact location you may want to search your entire hard disk. Click Find Now to begin.


Step 3

The search will eventually bring up a list of all files on your hard drive containing "xmas" in the title and reveal the exact location. We can then open the file by double clicking or use Windows Explorer to go to the actual folder.


Step 4

The Date tab allows searches to be carried out for files created / modified / last accessed on certain dates or during a time period. Click Find all Files and select Created. Select a time period, such as the whole of January, and click Find Now. The search will generate a list of files created during that month.

This function may be useful finding, say, the amount of work carried out last week.


Step 5

This function may be useful finding, say, the amount of work carried out last week.
