I’ve decided to post this tip first because I regularly share it with clients who I find struggling trying to find a programme or file. Windows Search is one feature that Microsoft has done well developing over the years.
- Click on the Windows Icon or the Search Icon on the toolbar
- Begin typing what you are looking for – a list of suggestions will appear
Top Trick: If you are searching for a file, but have forgotten what it’s called – you can search for the application instead. Windows will display the application and a list of documents you edited using that application.
- Simply click on the relevant link and it will load for you.
And that’s it. Three simple steps to quickly find and access virtually anything on your PC. This also works if you are looking for a particular Windows setting such as your display options or device management.
