How to find pic on HDD

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to locate ALL my wifes pics on her computer. Isn't there some command you type in under the search area. I'm moving her to a smalled drive and her computer is mainly to hold her pictures and some office work and some internet.

Just search for all pics on your machine (check attached pic). Of course that would return a lot of bogus results but then again if your wife named her pictures my_bday1.jpg and my_bday2.jpg then you are better off using my_bday*.jpg instead of *.jpg to filter search results to something more meaningful.
One last thing... check how I added *.jpg;*.gif;*.bmp under the same search instead of performing 3 different search requests for each file type.

start -> search -> for files or folders
click 'pictures, music or video'
check 'pictures'
click advanced search
be certain in the 'look in' field, all your drives are there.
click search.
