Microsoft has regularly made Home windows Explorer/Record Explorer increasingly difficult to make use of, to the purpose the place one feels one wishes a PhD in pc programming to comprehend it. I’ve spent hours preventing with Record Explorer in Home windows 10 to do issues that took me 30 seconds to do within the previous Home windows Explorer that got here with Home windows 95. Here’s what I wish to do:
I’ve a partial title — now not an entire title — of a report that I *know* is on my pc someplace. I wish to use Record Explorer to search out *all* information on my pc with a undeniable word as *section* (now not all) of the name of the report. As soon as I’ve that listing, which might be not more than 100 information or so, I can briefly be capable of in finding the place my lacking report is living.
As an example, I do know that the filename I’m searching for has the phrases “Heating” and “Electrical energy” in it, however I can’t take into accout the filename itself. (The report itself additionally has each “Heating” and “Electrical energy” within it, as column titles in a spreadsheet.)
If Record Explorer have been designed to be useful to other folks, I’d merely be capable of pass to the Folder I need (e.g., Industry), and seek that folder and all subfolders for *all* information that comprise the phrases “heating” or “electrical energy” within the titles — *without reference to what else is within the name*. However I do know no method of doing this.
Actually, I will be able to’t even deliver up “Complex Seek Choices” to any extent further — where the place you’ll be able to input prior to and after dates, report sizes, and so forth. I used so that you could in finding that throughout the Lend a hand menu, however now the Lend a hand menu, which used to pop up slightly window solely inner to Record Explorer Lend a hand, takes me outdoor of Record Explorer assist to Microsoft Bing and I am misplaced in 1,000,000 internet hits.
Can anyone inform me:
a. Learn how to open Record Explorer in Home windows 10 after which turn on the Complex Seek choices so the headers that let you to make a choice dimension, date, and so forth. of information change into visual?
b. Learn how to do a “in finding report via key phrases in report name” seek as defined above?
