Lost in the Maze? How to Search

Considering a default installation of Windows 2000 has almost 10,000 files in the WinNT directory alone, it can be very easy to “lose” a file on a hard drive. Fortunately, Windows provides a facility to help with locating any mislaid files. Providing you know at least some details about the file in question, it is quite easy to find it again.

The search tool is accessed in one of two ways. To perform a more “global” search, click the Start button, move the cursor over the “Search” option and choose “For Files or Folders” from the popup menu that appears.

Alternatively if you have an idea of where the file you need might be located you can browse to a location using Explorer, right click a folder and select “Search” from the popup menu. Using this technique simply tells the search tool to begin its search from the folder you clicked.

Note that this window looks almost identical to a normal Explorer window – that is because it is! Explorer is providing the search functionality here. To prove it, click the “Folders” button on the toolbar to revert the interface to the normal Explorer tree view appearance.
