Your computer contains thousands of files, and that's before you even turn it on for the first time. You'll add thousands more files, from music and photos to videos and documents, over the life of your computer.
Sorting through the pile isn't easy, especially if you're looking for a specific document like a resume or a special photo. Windows can help with its built-in search function in the Start menu or in an Explorer window.
But the default Windows search isn't the most advanced search available. What you really need is a comprehensive program that's just as easy to use as the Windows default search.
SearchMyFiles is a much better search tool that helps you pinpoint exactly what you're looking for and can even spot duplicate files taking up space on your computer. You can specify and exclude folders for searches, and even designate a specific file size or file attributes.
Most created files log the date and time they were created, modified and accessed. You can search by any of these attributes to find the file you're looking for, which is helpful if you can remember the day you created it but not the title.
