Locate virtually any file on your PC and open it in seconds. Finding documents, e-mails or songs is now as simple as searching the web.
One click search
Simply click on the Start menu and type what you’re looking for in the search box. As you begin typing, you’ll instantly see a list of documents, pictures, music and e-mails related to your search word. The results are grouped by category and have highlighted keywords and text so it’s easy to scan.
If you’re working on a network, have multiple hard drives or have files stored in folders all over the place, Windows 7 search can help. It’s designed to search external hard drives, networked PCs and Libraries as if they were in one location.
Find what you need
Once you get your search results you can instantly narrow them by date, file type and other useful categories.
