Hello Guys !

Ever wonder how to search for a file from command line

How many times you have lost while searching for a file .
I you are like me , who have a messy folders and files then this command saves you from lots of work .


1.Open powershell
2.and type the following command

dir -r -filter your_file (it support wildcard)

for instance : dir -r -filter *hack*.pdf

this will list all pdf files that have "hack" in them .
