Fedora Search for Files
Desktop Training - Fedora 8

If you need to find a specific file by keyword, you can do this with the Search for Files feature that is located at Places --- Search for Files.


After the search window loads you can see we have several different areas to identify. The first area is the Name contains field. Here you can enter the keyword that you want to search for. Under Look in folder you can select folders from the drop down list. Select more options allows us to search by Contains the text and many more refinements. The large white area is where the search results will be listed. Columns separate the files name, folder, and size.
