One of my favorite features in Windows 7 can be found at the bottom of the Start Menu. Click on the Start button, and look for the “Search Programs and Files” box. Simply typing the name of your program or file in the box will open it. once you start to use this method, you may give up rooting around in the Start Menu or the All Programs Menu forever. This works the same as the old “Run” dialog box for running utilities such as MSCONFIG or CMD.
Need to open a file? If you know the name, part of the name, or even some of the document contents, this Search utility will find and display several options and you can choose the one you need from the results.
Another wait to begin is to just press the Windows key. This will open the Start Menu and you can begin typing. Give it a try – you will be hooked in no time!Share
