Lost in the Maze?
We have so many files in our computer
it can be very easy to forget where we put them. We may simply not know
because a program auto saved (to a default location) them for
us. There is help! Windows contains a Find function that
will help us locate files, based on what we remember about them.
Try using this method for finding
- Click Start, point to Find, and
then click Files or Folders.
- Click Date to look for files that
were created or modified on or between specific dates.
- Click Find Now.

Notice we can include subfolders.
These are the folders that have associated information
such as a viewer for a picture. The search in Figure 112
is looking for a .BMP (Bitmap file) a type of picture
or graphic file.

Click the Advanced tab to look for files of a specific type (extension) or size.
Some application programs (database programs are famous for this) use their own "proprietary" file system format. If you need to use one of these applications, be aware that it's unlikely that the standard Windows tools for managing and searching disk (file) contents will work.
