Searching for a particular file can be stressful, especially if it’s a file that is of the utmost importance and needs to be retrieved in the quickest time possible. Discover how you can locate that missing file far faster than you might have imagined.
Imagine that you need some figures and diagrams from a particular file for an important project presentation. Unfortunately, despite racking your brains, you just cannot recall the filename where you’ve seem them before. All you know is that it is a word document and some keywords that are used in the document. Now imagine using the standard Windows Search function to locate the document. You’re going to have to search for all “.doc” files. It will be like searching for a needle in a hay stack, since you will have to open every single document until you come across the file you need. You could get lucky and find what you’re after quickly, but the chances of that happening are pretty slim, especially if you have numerous “.doc” files on your hard drive.
