Re: how do I search for specific file types?
Kind is a 'rollup' of file types. .bmp, .jpg, ,tif are all of the kind
You can select the 'Kinds' column in a detail view in Explorer to see what
is assigned for Excel spreadsheets. (I haven't installed Office under Vista
yet, I only have it under XP, which doesn't have 'kinds'.
