Illegitimi non carborundum

Vista search options

Recommended Posts

There isn't a OS Forum, so i'll post my question here. It is FS related though. In XP searching for lets say all summer textures in Scenery/World/texture was easy, just had to type in 'su' and it was done. In Vista this doesn't seem to work anymore. Maybe it's easy, buy i just can't find it. Anyone a hint?Regards, Gerrit

GerritThis is a good site that I use all the time:http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/desktopsearch/technicalresources/advquery.mspxI used in the searchbox at the top of the pane: filename:su*.bmp and that gave me all of the textures beginning with "su". I used "ext:bmp" (or you could use "kind:bmp")to get all the bmp files and "title:sce" gave all of the scenery files.Its a whole new ball game.RegardsPeter Hayes

Thankyou Peter, that did it. At first the numbers of searched files didn't match but typing filename: *B. for all the files with file name ending on B did it :) Just wonder why MS made this so complicated.Regards, Gerrit
