I'm somewhat disorganized in my file saving habits, so I wind up using the Search function in Windows Explorer more often than one should. I was wondering, is it possible to have Windows find all files of a certain extension ( like, say for example all .rar files) if it is, how?
- Open up Windows Explorer.
- Go to
- Type in
*.rarinto the search box and hit Enter.
Then wait for the search process to find all the rar-files on your C-drive.
* is a wildcard, so you can also do more advanced things with it. Suppose you know your file is called
<something>final.<extension> you can search for
*final.* to find all files, whose names (excluding extension) ends in
final or you can type
size: into the search field to search by kind of file or size of file.
