Power Tips

On this page you can know some useful techniques of finding your files with our Finder tool.

Using Folders Tree.
Generally people organize their files in some folder structure. Some times it is mach complex then standard My Document folder. From other hand, modern versions of MS Windows operating system have a lot of system files. That is why it is not necessary to scan all your files while searching. With Folders Tree panel you can specify exactly what folders or disk you want to include into scanning. Your selection will be stored and you do not need to set it again and again.

Specifying type of searched files.
With Finder you can search for group of different file types. For example, you are looking for file prepared with MS Word, but you dont remember its format (DOC or RTF). Using Finder you can not only easy select your group of types, but create your own group or edit default.
