Searching for Files

A hard disk whose capacity is measured in gigabytes can hold tens of thousands of files in hundreds or even thousands of folders. (On my C: drive, for instance, Windows is keeping track of 26,141 files and folders, collectively occupying some 6.23GB of disk space.) It's perfectly normal to lose track of one or more of those files (or even an entire folder) occasionally. When that happens, use Windows Me's Search Assistant, a greatly improved version of the Find Files or Folders utility from Windows 95 and 98.

Using the Search Assistant, you can hunt down misplaced files, if you can remember any portion of the filename. You also can search for other details, such as the size and type of the file, the date it was created, or a fragment of text within the file.
