We use Windows search program in order to look for any file or folder saved on computer’s hard drive. Normally, you can search for a file or folder by typing its name in the search column. But what if you do not remember the name of the file or folder? Well, if you enhance the Windows search, it will be easier to find any file or folder. Let’s get to know some parameters that can help us to make Windows search more enhanced.

How to go about it
  • If you remember the file extension (for example, ppt, pdf, jpg, mp3, doc), use it as a parameter in your search – ext: ppt or ext: pdf or ext: doc.
  • If you want to search as per the date when the file was saved, use this parameter – date: 01-11-2012..02-12-2012.
  • If you want to search for file after a particular date and with a particular extension, use this parameter – kind:pictures date: >23-11-2012.
  • If you want to search for a large sized file, then select the size parameter – size:500MB..800MB.
