Windows 7: Windows Search is bot my cuppa!

Windows Search is bot my cuppa!

TBH compared with previous versions I find it confusing to use.

I am going around in circles at present,

Back in June 2004 we holidayed in Cornwall and took several jpg photos. Somehow or other they got misplaced. I want to search for all jpgs created, modified, taken within a 3 month period from 1 June. I can create a filter for 'date taken' but no others.

Can some one help, please?

I haven't found a tutorial, so a link would also be welcome,

Hello Rundwald,

This may be able to help. You can click back in the search box to be able to select another search filter to use.

Search in Windows 7

Hope this helps,

Once you've found the search facility as Brink pointed out to you, you might want to look at this tutorial also:
