Locating a file

Locating a file

We all have the best intentions when it comes to organizing our computer files. Yet we still sometimes forget just what folder we might have placed that file in.  Perhaps you created a sub-folder for it?  Luckily the Windows operating system gives us some options for locating files that we need to find. Windows 10 has a box in the lower left hand corner. “Type here to search”.  Type in part of the file name and it will bring up selected file containing that name on your computer, and below that tells you programs you can install that can be used to open that file.  For older operating systems, single click on the “start” button; when that menu comes up, single-click on Search. Depending on your operating system, your search box may also be located in the lower left hand corner below ALL PROGRAMS.
