A computer client of mine couldn’t find a folder on their new Dell Windows 10 computer last week. Earlier in the month I copied the files from their old computer to the new one and put them in a folder on the desktop. They were manually searching through the folder and never found it.   I connected remotely through the internet and found it in a few minutes. My client was surprised I found it this quickly and wanted to know how.  In every modern operating system like Microsoft Windows, Linux and Mac there is a search feature in the file explorer window or files folder(Linux).  It’s usually in the upper-right corner with a magnifying glass icon.  Type the name of the file or folder in the search field and the computer searches the location and any subfolders for your file.
