Searching for a File

The hard drives being installed in new computers are absolutely huge. You can store thousands and thousands of files on a single drive. Even with the best file management system, however, locating a single file can sometimes be daunting. Learning how to use the tools that help you locate files is one of the most important skills you can master. Word has a nice collection of tools to help you locate files so you don’t have to start another program to do a search.

Listing Files by Type

When you have many different types of files in a folder, limiting the number of files in the list can be a big help. One way to accomplish this is to display only a specific type of file in the list. For example, if you display only Word documents in the list, you can more easily find the file you are looking for.
