    Search option canít find the files on Windows 7

    It is not possible to find out the files I want using the ĎSearchí feature in my PC running on Windows 7. The directory is already indexed and the extension list includes *.php. What are the steps for fixing up this issue?

    Re: Search option canít find the files on Windows 7

    Right after clicking the ‘Start’ button, type Search into the search box. Click on the ‘Change how Windows searches’ command and then press the ‘Advanced’ button. Press the ‘File types’ tab and locate the file type you want to search. Confirm that the radio button next to ‘Index Properties and File Contents’ for this file type is already selected. Close the current window by clicking the ‘OK’ button. Then, make sure that the folders you want are listed under ‘Indexed Locations’ if they are on a different disk or partitions. After that, quit all windows by clicking the ‘OK’ button and check whether the ‘Search’ feature is working properly afterwards.
