To anyone using PC with Windows Systems Operation.
PC with Windows System Operation, any version, has a “POWERFUL SEARCH ENGINE” that allow to you to find anything in your computer hard drive, DVD/CD devices, USB flash drive, etc.
You don’t need to know the complete name of the file or document, or where your the file is located (although, it better to have this information).
For Windows XP follow these steps.
- Click Start and from the pop up select Search (Icon that has a magnifier)
- Search Results screen will show. In the left side of the screen you will see different criteria to find files, documents, etc. “What do you want to search for?”
- Click in All files and folders, if you want to find a file.
- In All or part of the file name box type the partial or complete name of file that you want to find.
- In Look in, select the location of the file, hard drive, DVD/CD, or any media that you are using.
- Click Search. I guarantee you that before you move your hands of the keyboard the file will be show in the right side of the screen.
- Now Click or Double Click in the file and the Systems Operation will open automatically the file. You will need to have installed application to open PDF file (Adobe Reader is the most popular) but there are other application that can be used to open it.
My recommendations are; read carefully the many options or criteria that you have to find information in your computer, practice and see the result that you get, and if you have the time and want to learn to get the most of the computer click in help in any screen. You will learn to do many things.
