Help & Advice

There are two ways to search in Windows 10:-

 

1)  You can open up File Explorer and type your search in the search box (as highlighted below)

 

This will allow you to search for files stored on your computer

 

search1_win10

 

2) You can use the new search facility that is part of Cortana

 

This will allow you to search through files stored on your computer, as well as settings, programs and the internet

 

Depending on how your Windows 10 is configured the search facility will either appear as an icon in your taskbar (as circled in red below)

 

search2_win10

 

Or it will appear as a box for you to enter your search (as shown below)

 

search3_win10

 

Either enter your search in the box or click the icon and then enter your search in the box

 

Your results will then be displayed (as shown below)

 

You can use the icons at the top of the search results to narrow the results to just Apps, Documents or Web, and you can filter to certain locations using the Filters button
