File Search

Several years ago someone published a hint for speeding up filesearches in Explorer using the identifier @ for filenames and ! for file content.

It was blisteringly fast, but unfortunately I have forgotten the exact syntax.

I've searched the magazine and the forums for five years back but can find nothing.

Anybody remember it?

If you are searching for
a specific file, folder, or program, type the first letter of the filename, and the
window will automatically scroll to the section of the folder containing your file.
