    Search Files and Folders


    In previous versions of Windows, one could press the start button and at the bottom of the column there was a blank space where you could enter a filename and locate it on the hard drive. I can't find this tool on Windows 10. Is it there?

    Should be the button directly to the right of the Start button, either the Cortana circle icon or if you disabled cortana it will be a magnifying glass. You can also just press the Start button and start typing, search should automatically pop up.
