I was wondering about this myself.
I miss the old XP search too.. I tried pasting "kind:" with or without quotes into the search box and all it does is open up a command prompt window.
I use XP search to find recent files.. or files by date..
I haven't looked at the link yet.. i'll do that now.
EDit: I looked at the page.. you mean to tell me it's only command prompt based, and I have to learn/memorize all the search commands to use it?.. No easy GUI? like in XP.. or am i missing something.. If thats the case.. that really sucks.. I also notice you can "get it now" downlo0ad this.. er.. this is not the same as the search built into windows but a seperate app??
Edit: Oh I see.. the download is offered for XP and Vista.. it is the same as comes with Win 7.
Oh I see.. I found more info here,http://windows7news.com/2009/06/30/f...dows-7-search/
After you type Kind: <-- then you type the type of file you want like docs so it would be kind: docs
I still think this sucks compared to the way XP did it.
