Looking for e-mail, documents or photos?
MSN Desktop Search lets you search your computer for documents and files, photos and videos, music, and Outlook and Outlook Express items such as e-mail messages, contacts, and appointments. Desktop Search lets you search your computer for many types of files.
File types you can search
You can search all of the content in most common document file types, including text files, Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, Outlook and Outlook Express items, and web pages. In addition, if you installed the Adobe plug-in when you installed MSN Toolbar Suite, you can search all of the content of PDF files.
You can search for keywords in the titles of music, image, and video files, as well as program executable files.
Locations you can search
Desktop Search lets you search files in all indexed locations. By default, Desktop Search indexes your e-mail files and all files saved in the My Documents folder.
However, you can have Desktop Search index other locations, including network drives.
