Many PC users do not always care to check the location in which they save files. All they know is that they have saved the file on their system without even looking at it’s name. This usually happens when we want to download files from the internet or we’re typing, and our system signals battery low and we just save the file to avoid loss without knowing the location in which we saved it to.
Windows have in-built search tool which helps us search for anything saved inside our system’s memory. But, sometimes, we do not even know the name of the file. I am going to share a tip on how to find a file easily even if we don’t know it’s name but still remember the day, date or week that we saved it.
Let us assume you saved the file today, just open your search box and type ‘date:today‘ without the quotes and then press enter on your keyboard. The system will display only all the files you saved on your system today, thereby, saving us time and battery life which we would have used in searching the file folder to folder, drive to drive, etc.
Note: This can also be used on files saved on a specific day. If you saved the file say, on Tuesday, just types “date:Tuesday” and press enter. This is also applicable for files saved weeks ago, yesterday or any time at all.
