Part 1. Getting Started > Finding Files

Finding Files

Open the File menu and choose File Search to open the Basic File Search task pane.

Type all or part of the name of the file you are searching for (in this case, Region).

Click the down arrow next to the Search in field, and then click on the plus sign (+) next to My Computer to display a list of your computer's contents.

Click the check box next to the folders and drives you want to search, and uncheck any you want to bypass. When you're ready, click the down arrow to exit the list.

INTRODUCTION

The more files you create and save in Excel, the harder it can be to locate them all. Fortunately, if you haven't kept all your files organized in folders according to project, date, or task, Excel can help you find your files.


Click the down arrow next to the Results should be field. Click on the checked boxes in the list to uncheck all options except Excel Files; then click the down arrow to exit the list.

Click the Go button to initiate the search.

Double-click on the file once it is found to open it and begin working.
