How to do smarter file searches in Windows 8?


For searching your important files and documents, Windows 8 dynamic search option immediately displays and filters results. But, for documents located outside Libraries you can use File Explorer formerly known as Windows Explorer.


To access File Explorer from the Start screen, perform the below steps:

1. Type the file name and click “File Explorer” app.

2. Then move your mouse to the lower left corner of the screen, right-click and choose “File Explorer” from the pop-up menu.

3. Press “Win-E” (i.e. the Windows key and E key). This is the fastest way to get there.

After this, File Explorer points to Libraries. You can make it search more broadly by clicking your desired drive or folder in the navigation pane at left. And, then type your desired parameters in the search field. If Windows 8 standard search options are working for you then go for it. Also, a preference can be given to Win-E for a more old-school file manager.

Thus, perform this task easily using above steps. For more from the XpertCrewTM team, please follow us on Twitter @Techvedic or contact Techvedic’s computer support helpdesk, as per below contact-details:
