Hi,
I know this might seem stupid to ask but how do I look for files by Size in Vista. I used the "Search files greater than: 1000 kbs" option all the time when I had XP. I could always just open up a search window search for files greater than 100000 kbs & find all my videos or games if I forgot where I put them. How do I do that same thing with Vista? I've tried the Start Window search box with no luck. There is no "Search Option" on the Start Up window like there is on XP. I know Vista is supposed to have all this fancy smart search crap, big deal! I just want to search for Size or other Categories. When you get to advanced search there is no option for Size or Video (unless video counts in the Picture category) Can anyone help me out with this issue Thanks!!

hi,,,, type in search into the search box,,, select searches out of the menu offerd,,, in therr click advanced search,,, on the left of his you can filter the search,,, location,,, date and,,,SIZE,,,, its also a good idea to have the C: drive indexed,,, better searching,,,, beats the silly dog by a country mile.

Thanks for all the help. I feel kinda stupid. There was an option in advanced search to search by size. I guess my problem was, getting to the advanced search option quickly. I found a quick step to go directly to the advanced search feature. On your keyboard just hit the "Windows button" & F at the same time. (the window button on my keyboard is between the Ctrl & Alt buttons. It opens Advanced Search automatically.
