How to find a folder on a computer?
In the modern world can not do without a good knowledge of the computer. But how to navigate a large number of files and programs that are on our hard drive? First, we will help you learn how to find a program on your computer.
Looking for a program
When you install any programs, they create launch shortcuts that are automatically placed on your “desktop” to find where the program itself is located. is the program.
Now let's look at what needs to be done to find, for example, a photo from our summer holiday.
A saved photo is also a file, but how to find a file in a computer? The easiest way is to open a folder with a photo, but another question arises - how to find a folder on a computer?
Looking for a folder
Again, no problem if you remember where you saved the folder, but sometimes we just forget where we all put it.We will come to the aid of "internal search".
Click on the "start" button and select the "search" menu, in the search window, specify the name assigned to the folder (in our case, this is the "rest" folder) and start the search with the "enter" button. The computer scans all the files and gives us all the existing folders with similar names, in the results we are looking for the folder we need.
The task will be a bit more complicated if we don’t remember how we called our folder with photos, or we need to directly find the photo we need. We reopen the internal search and set additional search criteria - name (part of the name), date of creation (change), size, file extension, estimated location (logical disk) - then press “enter”, after the end of the search we look at the results that were returned this will be much easier to do than to browse all the folders on the computer in turn.
The launch of the programs is carried out by launching them through special icons that are brought to the desktop for convenience (usually, shortcuts to frequently used programs and services are usually placed on the desktop). The “my computer” icon is usually located on the desktop, because we often have to look through the system service information.The more programs we install, the less free space becomes on the screen, and we have to remove unnecessary shortcuts, how to find “my computer” if we accidentally deleted it too?
There is nothing simpler: press the "start" button - right-click "my computer" - left-click on the "display on desktop" menu. The label "my computer" is again on the "desktop".
