Three primary options can be set before performing a search. The first is the file or folder name to search for. This text box can accept a placeholder or wildcards, so if a file is named CompTIA.doc entering Comp*.doc will locate it. The second option allows for the searching of text strings inside files. This option is extremely useful when looking for a specific string within a directory full of flat text files, and is used as a specifier for the Search for files or folders named option. In other words, to locate the word CompTIA in all text files you would enter *.txt in the first edit box and CompTIA in the second. The final option specifies where the search tool should look for matches to the specified criteria. This is mainly used to speed up the search process, as there is little point searching all available drives for a document that is stored in an unknown location, but definitely on the C drive.
Clicking on the blue Search Options link expands a box to provide a few more ways to narrow down the search criteria.
Clicking on the blue Indexing Service link at the bottom of the box displays a dialog like the one in Figure 160.
