Finding Your Files with Search and Libraries

Use the Windows 7 search and Windows 7 libraries features to find files on your computer. This free lesson teaches you how.


As we mentioned earlier, you determine what content goes into your Libraries. You can decide to use the default Libraries or create your own. Either way, you will need to take the time to move folders into the Libraries you desire.

You can still continue to access your files in the classic way of sorting through tiered stacks, but you will not be able to take advantage of the convenience of the Search function. It's a new way of accessing your files and may take some customization to work as effectively as you wish. Take some time to reconsider your filing system and how you would like to access your files.
