Two, use other search tools. There are too many to look at so let's find the top ones at ... CNET's download.com
http://download.cnet.com/windows/search-tools/ lists them but I'd shy away from Copernic due to posts about it here. Try -> "Everything."
Hello to all! As you can tell by my screen name, MS dragged me kicking and screaming away from XP. My new Windows 7 machine has a lot of interesting stuff, but IMHO the file search function is useless when compared to the search capability in XP. I dutifully went to the MS website and looked through their search tips, but... no. So here's my 2-part question:
Part One: Can I copy files from XP that would allow me to use XP's search function in Windows 7?
Part Two: Assuming the answer above is No... has any shareware/freeware producer created a useful substitute? I don't need the dog thing, I need a search engine that allows me to limit the results - and then choose my answer and head to that folder.
Thanks in advance!
