If you go to the start screen and just start typing, a search box will appear. You can also bring up a search box from the desktop by hitting Win + S or move the mouse cursor to upper right corner to display the Charms bar and click on the search icon (looks like a magnifying glass).

I personally prefer to search for files from within Windows Explorer. That way I can limit which folders get searched.

I've never been infuriated by Win 8, sorry you find it that way. Maybe after you use it awhile you'll see that it has more in common with Win 7 then you realize.

Why don't you upgrade to W8.1....?

W8.1 is by far the best OS yet from Microsoft. And that from someone who has been using Windows since W95.

There is no one person. It took a large committee of jerks, many of whom trained by helping with Vista and Windows ME. :D

Upgrade to 8.1--it mitigates some of the negatives. Read my tutorial (sticky thread at top of this forum) to see how to use 8.1 pretty much like Windows 7 (or previous versions).

With most Windows OS's, have you tried "Windows key + f"

Yes, 8.1 is free. You have to get all the Windows 8 updates, and then 8.1 will be offered as a download when you visit the Store.
