    Re: How to search for the pictures using file name in Windows XP?

    STEP 1: Start the Search Utility.


    Start --> Search --> For Files or Folders. If you have named your folders with enough details you should be able to locate them very quickly using the Search capability that Windows includes by default. You don’t need any special program to install or learn, you use only what comes with Windows on your PC.
    STEP 2: Click All Files and Folders on the Search Utility screen.
    STEP 3: Enter parameters for searching.
    Make sure you select My Pictures (or your pictures folder) in the “Look in” field. Otherwise it will search your entire computer. In the “All or part of the file name” field enter the event or place you’re looking for.
    If you have named your picture folders properly you should be able to find them quickly. Enter something like: bday, birthday, grandma, yosemite, or other events or places of interest. You can also enter part of a word (i.e. grand, year, birth, and day) and the search utility will find what you’re looking for.

    Hello,

    It is very easy to search a file by the image name.

    There are many types of search options given in the windows search to make it easy for the user to search.

    First of all open the search option in the system.

    Now on the left side down there will be a loit of options given to you out of which one would be

    Search an image.

    Now what happens in this option is that the computer to shorten the search time only searches those files which have the image type extension.

    So by this the time taken is reduced.

    After you have selected the option you can type the image name on the search box.

    And do the search . Now if you want to enhance the search option.

    Than go to advanced search and in that you can also specify the drive name in which you want to search.

    By this your search will be narrow your search.

    -regards

    Re: How to search for the pictures using file name in Windows XP?

    It's quite easy to search for a photo from a large set of image in windows XP .
    Open the folder where you have saved all your photos .
    Now , as you want to have a particular photo you can easilyu locate it by knowing the first alphabet of the name of the image .
    When you have opened the location of that particular image , press a key in the keyboard that starts from that is the first alphabet of the image name .
    For example : If the file name is " Enrique " then press the key ' E ' in the keyboard .
    By doing so you will directly reach to all those files(images) starting with the entered alphabet .

    This would certainly help you in searching a particular file from large numbers of files in a same folder or disk .

    to search the pictures just
    1. Start --> Search --> For Files or Folders.
    2. Click All Files and Folders on the Search Utility screen.

    You may wonder: Why not use the Pictures, Music or Video? This option will find specific files and not folders. We usually want to find the folders containing the pictures we want, so we need to search for folders.
    3. Enter parameters for searching

    Hello dear friend,


    Every operating system have search option to search all type of file, folder, videos or mp3 file.. etc. You can easily search pictures by file name in Xp. If you have named your folders with enough details you should be able to locate them very quickly using the Search capability that Windows includes by default. You don’t need any special program to install or learn, you use only what comes with Windows on your PC.

    STEPS


    =>>Start menu

    =>> Search

    =>> For Files or Folders


    hope you like this information...


    Thank you...!!
