Windows Tips and Tricks - How to Use the Search Feature

One of the most useful features of Windows 7 is the Search function. While earlier versions of the operating system included search capabilities, those capabilities were much more limited.

With Windows 7, you can use the search function to easily find whatever you are looking for, including context-specific help on any number of subjects. You can also use the search function to find the control panel icons you need, without having to remember which category Windows 7 has placed them in. That can save you a great deal of time and eliminate the need to memorize an entirely new control panel layout.

To use the search function built into Windows 7, just follow these simple steps.
1. Click the Start button
2. Go to the Search box
3. Type a description of what you want to find, i.e. System Restore, Help, Printer etc.

Once you have typed the word or phrase into the Search box, you will instantly be taken to a context-specific box that provides complete information on how to perform the task you need.
