Task 13: Searching for Documents

Click Start and then Search.

Select what type of item you want to search for.

INTRODUCTION

It is easy to misplace a file. If you have saved a document, but cannot locate it by browsing through your folders, search for it. You can search for several different file types. From the search results, you can then open, print, copy, or move the file.


TIP

Search from Folder Window

You can also search from within a folder window. To display the Search Bar, click the Search button. Then perform the search.


TIP

Stop the Search

If the search is taking too long and your results have already been found, you can stop the search. To do so, click the Stop button.


Type all or part of the name.

Click the Search button.

Windows searches the selected folder or drives and displays a list of found files. You can double-click any of the listed files or folders to go to that file or folder.

To close the search window, click its Close button.
