Increasing the speed at which you locate the files stashed in your local directories, hard drives, and even network drives, is a massive productivity boost. This week we want to hear about your local file search tips and tricks.
There’s nothing more frustrating than knowing the file is somewhere on your computer but being unable to quickly locate it. For this week’s Ask the Readers session we’re interesting in hearing how you have increased your local file search efficiency. Do you use special tricks when using the default Windows search? Have you outright replaced the default search with something else? What about file search for files on external or networked drives? Whatever it is you do to put your vast array of files at your finger tips, we want to hear about it.
Sound off in the comments and don’t forget to check back on Friday for the What Your Said roundup.
