I use Windows Vista Premium.

And I have a bunch of files in various locations which I am unable to find.

Is there any way I can view every single file all at once on my computer?

Thanks.

If you can be more specific you can probably get some help finding what
you're looking for.

Only if you have a *really* big monitor. ;-)

Can you be more specific about what you're trying to accomplish.?

Hi, Chrissiblack.

Maybe Vista's Search function is what you need. If those files have a
common element in their names, you can search for that.

For example, if you want to see every file on your disk with "chriss* in
them, click the Start orb (in the lower left corner of your Vista screen) or
just press the Windows logo key (most newer keyboards have such a key).
Then start typing; the text should go into the Start Search box just above
that orb. For example, "chriss" (without the quotation marks) will search
for all files with that string of characters in either the filename or the
text.

Or open a Command Prompt window (cmd.exe) and then use the Dir command with
the /s switch to show all files and folders below the parent folder where
you start. If you type: Dir C:\chriss* /s, for example, you should see a
listing of every file with that sequence in its name - in all of C:.

If you give us a better idea of what you are trying to accomplish, we
probably can give you some more-focused advice.
