In Win2K when you were buried deep in a folder structure...for example...c:\program files\office\blah\blah\blahblah and if u wanted to search for a file, all u had to do was rite click the folder you were in, Select Search and Windows wud automatically put in the entire folder path (c:\program files\office\blah\blah\blahblah) into the Search In: field thus saving u the trouble of having to type it in manually...

I cannot get this feature to work in Win XP?
I have tried reverting back to the Classic view thinking that was the problem but it didnt help....No matter where I am the Search In: field always is blank...

Extremely annoying when you have deep nested folders and u are trying to look for a particular file from a list of thousands...

Anyone have a similar issue and have gotten it remedied?

cheers

My point was to give you additional data, it's not XP that's the issue, but rather something specific about your configuration. In the future, I'll be sure to ignore your messages. :rolleyes:

:thmbup: ahh way to be blunt.

Next time before starting your tirade you may want to sit back and take an objective view of things... (Let me help you out on that)
1)Your on a free board
2)People here don't have to be here, and the ones that respond to help questions really don't need to waste their time doing so if they don't want to.
3)More than likely none of us are on your payroll so we can basically go tell you to stuff your questions if we don't like them.

Now, the response you received indicated that this is NOT an XP issue therefor you should have started looking at your settings based on Johnwills response, instead of rattling off that wonderful response that got us nowhere.

Now anyone that has been around long enough probably assumes that Id lock this one as soon as I saw it, and I was ... but I decided to flip a coin on the matter and lost. :bandit:

So onto the question hopefully without any further unneeded sarcasm from you. Is this XP install an upgrade or a fresh install?
