moderated Re: Searching my computer contents


if you know the folder that contains the file that will produce a match for the contents you are searching for, navigate to and open that folder, shift+tab to a search field, and past or type the contents you are looking for and press enter. tab once to the results that will show the most likely matches.

I don't know if there is a more global way.

Subject: Searching my computer contents
Hello, with my windows 7 computer, I would be able to press the windows key
and type a search word or string. Now, with windows 10, jpressing windows
doesn't do that. If I press windows key with the letter s, it brings
searching on the web and all kinds of things not on my computer. What is
the proper way to search contents on my computer? Thank you.
