I liked the search facility in win xp - I could go to Search - and enter a part of a file name and it would show me all the places it was. Don't know know how to do that in WIN 7 - does anyone know?

PS: it appeas that others are complaining about the win 7 search. I dod have a 3rd party tool that I can use to accomplish probalby most of the seraches I need: AGENT RANSACK.

I don't have Windows 7 to look at, Fay, but see if this article helps:

Repa,

I think from that article and others I have read - that the files have to be indexed for the search to work. I think I turned off indexing. From the information I have found, I may have to use my 3rd party tool to do what I want, which I guess is OK.

Thanks for the link,

Fay
