Search Facility

  recap 14:50 02 Aug 06

In the search facility in Windows, can you search multiple file extension like, *jpeg, *gif, *bmp etc. Or can you only search for one file type per search?

when you go to search click on pictuers that use the advance search options, that might help

Thanks aziz7733, I have tried that, but if I do a search with the following criteria I get nothing: *jpeg, *bmp

My understanding is that if you search using pictures it will bring up all pictures with all image file extensions. I reckon that if you put in *jpeg it will result in a search looking for a file called *jpeg.jpeg or *jpeg.gif, etc. Hence you get nothing.

It might help if you explain what you are searching for. There are a number of programs which will find photos on your computer and make them easy to find eg Picasa.

Thanks Woolwell,

The list would be too long to put on here for what I am looking for. I am running a network and want to delete as much as possible to save space from each client machine.

If I am understanding you, all I would need to do is type the word 'Picture' or 'Video' and this would find everything in that category?

Again Thanks Woolwell, that has sorted it.

If you start search, and then click on "pictures music and video" in the search Companion thingy, and then tick "pictures and photos", that should find all files with a "picture" extension i.e. jpeg, gif, etc.
