    Re: Finding pictures by date in Windows XP in Dell laptop

    Hello dear,
    I would give you a generalized method. It will work in any and every machine that you would use. Since you have mentioned Windows XP specifically, this will work very effectively there.
    Firstly you open My Computer. You can get this option under your Start Button or on your desktop itself.
    When you open this you will see the list of drives or partitions that you have in your machine. You can go to that particular drive where you are sure that you will get those particular pictures that you want. Or if you are not sure then you can search all the drives also.
    Now when you are settled as which portion of your My Computer to search for, click on the Search Tab on the top menu area in the My Computer window.
    When you do so you will see a separate panel opening on the left. Here you will get a question what do you want to search for?
    Click the first option which is pictures, music, or video. Then click on the check box of Pictures and Photos.
    Now one more option you need to select, which is Use advanced search options. There you get the option of when it was modified.
    Under this option you will get to mention the dates for the pictures that you want to search.
    Finally you click on search to get your final product.

    Re: Finding pictures by date in Windows XP in Dell laptop

    HELLO GUEST


    The easiest way to locate and view pictures on your computer is by using Windows Photo Gallery. By default, Photo Gallery shows all the pictures and videos that are located in the Pictures folder, but you can add other folders to Photo Gallery. You can search for pictures and videos by typing in the Search box or by clicking tags, ratings, or dates in the Navigation pane.
    Open Windows Photo Gallery by clicking the Start button [IMG]file:///C:/Users/Welcome/AppData/Local/Temp/msohtmlclip1/01/clip_image001.gif[/IMG], clicking All Programs, and then clicking Windows Photo Gallery.

    by year, month, or date taken
    In the Navigation pane, under Date Taken, click a year to see all of the pictures and videos taken during that year, or expand the year to select a month or date.

    So enjoy and thanks
    Regards Libin
