Hello Jlacy, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It's located in Folder Options under the Search tab.

Search Options - Vista Forums

Hope this helps,

Brink, I will add "I am having the exact same problem" to this. I am completely missing something about the new search tool and the tutorial did not turn on any lights.

I want to search for JPGs on two drives concurrently, and have no idea how.

Or, for all files named Capture* on two drives concurrently, and have no idea how.

You can open the Computer window and do a search from there to search all drives.

win 7
 
 

I must need my head crushed because I know some where in these 4 terabytes I have a folder called lauren from back sometime in 2007. Actully have have more than one folder but it's not finding any.

Win 7 has made my life more difficult over xp in this respect. Is there another tool I can try?
