2. Go to the start menu:
a. By going to the start menu you can search in the box that opens on the bottom and putting in the information that you remember from either the file name, or the information in the file itself. Once you put in the name of the file, or the part of the name of the file you can click on the little magnifying glass to start the search. It will open a new window and show you all the files that have what you are looking for in the names or contents of the file. If for some reason you can’t remember the entire file name you can use an (*) asterisk to fill in the missing portion of the name of the file. For instance if you were looking for all of the pictures on your computer that were a .jpg or jpeg file. You would enter this into the search bar: *.jpg and then click on the magnifying glass to search for all the files.
