Hi all, in XP if I plug in my external HDD drive at the top there is BACK, SEARCH, FOLDERS, SO If I want to find an image or document, click "search" and a list comes up asking what do I want (still with me), it would find all images in every folder till it runs out of memory.

but I can find nothing like it in windows 7, which is the OS on the new laptop.

any ideas?

thanks
