Windows 7: Search Command in Win 7`

Windows 7 Home Premium 32-Bit - Build 7600 SP1
 
 
Search Command in Win 7`

In XP you could hit the Start key and there was a "Search for File" were you could input a file name and it would find where the file was. Anything like that in Win 7?

The above poster is correct. I think that you will find this search even better than XP. It is able to find a file or folder that contains your search words. It gives you recommendations as you are typing. Bottom line, I think its much better than XP. I am glad that you asked, so now you can enjoy this great feature.
