Search for a directory named "profile"



I'm trying to search for a directory called "profile" on my computer, and I
can't figure out how it works. Open the search window, enter "profile",
select "documents", and then start search. This returns some files like
"readme.txt" that contain the text profile. But not the directory (which does
exist :)

Is it possible to search for files by filename in Vista?

Anyway, when I search my computer comes to a freezing halt, but that might
be the "beta" aspect.

The searching in Vista Beta 2 is crap - probably not worth the hassle :blush:(
Try and find a third-party program, such as Windows Live Toolbar (soon to be
rebranded btw :blush:))
