Filtering Folders in Windows 7

  PatBlanzy 13:20 08 Jan 2014

Windows now has some rudimentary methods to filter folders, however, from what I can tell they are too restrictive. An example of what I'd like to do is set up a filter to show only folders IN MY CURRENT FOLDER VIEW where the folder name contains L550 (i.e. not filter sub folders within the folders of the current view). Is this something that can be done with Windows 7? If not, is there a 3rd party add-on or stand-alone replacement that can perform this task. Thanks in advance for any and all assistance. Pat

Use the W7 Search function and tailor the Advanced Search to your requirements.
