Windows Search makes me happy



I’ve been very happy with Windows Search since I upgraded to Windows 7. Just one click and I can search all my e-mail archives, as well the files and documents on my computer.

I have extensive Outlook e-mail archives, so the ability to search them all from one place has come in very handy. For example, an xsibase user recently posted about a problem creating submenus in Python. This jogged something in my memory, so I clicked the Windows Start button, typed in “menu AddItem”, and in a few minutes I had tracked down the answer (again).

And just this morning, I used Windows Search to track down some code snippet I had written five years ago and emailed to somebody.
