Searching For A File

With the large hard drives in use today, it's easy to lose track of a single file. In Explorer (not My Computer) you can search for your lost files by entering a complete or partial name, the date the file was created, the file type, or the file's size. You can even look for some matching text within the file.

If you're unsure of the exact spelling of a filename, you can use wildcards when entering a filename to search for. There are two wildcards you can use: an asterisk represents multiple characters, and a question mark represents a single character in the filename. Table 13.1 lists some sample uses of wildcards.
