Improving Your Searches

You can use wildcard characters to narrow your search results. A wildcard character stands for one or more groups of characters, just as a joker often functions as a wildcard in card games. Search supports two wildcard characters: * and ?.

* acts as a wildcard for zero, one, or more characters. For example, if you want to see all files that end with the .txt extension, you can specify *.txt as your search criteria. The asterisk wildcard tells Search to locate every file that ends in .txt, no matter what appears before the file extension. The criteria ABC*.* represents all files that begin with the letters ABC, no matter what follows the letters and no matter what extension the file has. (ABC*.* even locates files that begin with ABC and have no extension.)
