Search Problem
I open the CD drive in Explorer. The CD root directory contains about 20
folders. I select Tools / Folder Options / Search and make sure "Include
subfolders when typing in the search box" is ticked, then close, and type
something in the search box. Nothing is ever found except folders in the
root directory.

I can open each folder and search for the files I need separately, but I
can't find a way to use the search box to search for file names across all
folders on the CD.

RE: Search Problem
yeah thanks ms on the lousy search tool. which works sometimes and then next
time nothing happens or is found. using the same search? all i can think is
that you have to add the file extension to your search like i had to for
older excel file types. grrr.
