Do I have to know the exact name
of a fi le to search for it?
No. If you know only a portion of
a fi le’s name, you can use an
asterisk in the name to represent
the remaining characters. For
example, if you know the fi le starts
with the letters, win, you can type
win* in the text box. All fi les
that begin with the letters win,
regardless of what letters follow,
will be displayed.
