Windows 7: searching for files in a specific time frame.

searching for files in a specific time frame.

I was steered in the right direction on how to search for photos on a specific date but I don't think anyone told me how to search for a specific time frame like a whole week in say some specific year. I want to know what pictures I scanned back in the second week or march 2000 Have a nice day. Of course from march 8 to march 15 would work too.

You would use the 'datetaken' filter (minus quotes), adding a partial ellipsis (2 dots) between the dates as per the example:03/08/2007..03/15/2007

and screenshot:

You can also use the drop down calendar (when date filter entered) to select the date range, but it can be kind of hinkey at times, so you may find just typing filter and date range in one fell swoop more convenient.


you can also turn up all images from a specific year just by typing, i.e., datetaken:2000. Sometimes it's nice to pick a particular year and see what was going on...

Spoil yourself,try using File Locator Lite (alias Agent Ransack). I and many wouldn't be without it - you wouldn't be asking your question.
