Finding Files on Your Computer

To locate files on your computer, click Computer, enter your search terms in the Search field, then press Enter. The results are displayed in the Desktop Search dialog box.

You can use the results lists to open a file, forward it via e-mail, or display it in the file manager. Simply right-click an item in the results list and select the option you want. The options available for an item depend on the type of file it is. Clicking a file in the list displays a preview of the file and information such as the title, path, and date the file was last modified or accessed.

Use the Find In menu to limit your search to files in a specific location, such as your address book or Web pages, or to display only a specific type of file in your results list. The View menu lets you sort the items in your results list according to name, relevance, or the date the file was last modified.

You can also access Desktop Search by clicking Computer > More Applications > System > Search.
