You would just set your search options for how you want searches done, then you can search from the Computer window to search all drives.

in windows explorer type *.* in the search box while in the folder you want to search. This searches for all files
and folders in the directory, if u wish to search just mp3 files u can type *.mp3 or for images *.jpeg etc etc

hope this helps and very true about stepping forward then taking a huge step back
