Abstract

This chapter is mostly about searching for programs, folders, files, and messages that are inside, or directly connected to, user's computer. Understanding how searches work in Windows 10 is critical to performing quick, successful searches. Most searches are performed on an index. The index is like the index at the back of this or any other book. The quick and easy way to find a program, Windows 10 app, favorite website, file, contact, or e-mail message is to search right from the taskbar search field. User can do AND and OR searches from the Start menu. The chapter talks about these kinds of searches in more detail. When conducting searches in Windows 10, the searches do not look exclusively at file and folder names — they look at the contents of files, tags, and properties as well.
