How Search for Files in Windows 7?
One of the most baffling things about Microsoft 'upgrades' is getting rid of useful features from previous versions.

In XP, you could specify general file type - photos, music, etc. - and search all, and specify folder, drive, etc. No such luck in Windows 7, which has made it decidely harder to search for anything.

It's very simple. I bought a new laptop, and want to import all music, photos and videos from my old computer. But the new search function off the start button doesn't let you specify file type or location...

I want to find ALL music - regardless of file type - on my external hard drive, etc., then copy and import to my new computer.
