Search Windows 7 For File Names Rather Than Files Containing That Name?

Postby Ezra » Tue Oct 10, 2017 1:14 pm

Hello,

Is there a way to search for a file name (like in previous versions of Widows) rather than searching for anything containing that word? For example, I want to search a for files with the word 'Pension' in the title, but intead I receive thousands of results for files called containing the word pension.

Thanks!
Ezra

Hi.

Open any folder.

Organize > Folder and search options> Search > Always search file names only > Apply/OK

Or

Open any folder ( From menu bar , Press Alt key if menu is not shown).

Tools >Folder options >Search> Always search file names only > Apply/OK
