How to use search in Windows 7
Files added to the hard drive get indexed instantly and we could see them in less than 10 seconds. Just start typing the name of a file, a folder, a program, or even text you know appears within a file— pretty much anything in the Start Menu and search results will start showing up, organised by category. When you see what you're looking for in the list of search results, left click on it to open. Or, if you don't see what you're looking for in the visible list, click on a category. You can also click on ‘See more results’ to view the complete list of search results in Windows Explorer. Search result also has snippets which are longer than what was available in Vista and highlights relevant items in your files and documents, revealing important data even if it's not in the file name. This should appeal specifically to people who handle lots of documents and eBooks, but it's a useful feature for anybody who wants to find stuff faster. The search field is available by default in the Start menu and in Windows Explorer, apart from the option of pinning them on Jumplists.
