Search for files by date and time?

    Question

  • I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but... I'm new to using Vista, and I'm frustrated by the new search dialog.  I would like to search for files that have been modified in the last two minutes, but it doesn't look like this is possible.  In XP, I would get around this limitation by searching a folder tree for anything (i.e. specify nothing in the search dialog), then in the results, sort by modification date/time.  It doesn't look like you can search for anything in the new dialog.

     

    Can someone suggest a way that I could do this?

     

    Thanks.

  • Hi,

    Actually you can do this.

    A simple wildcard search " * " (without the quotation marks) should return all files in the directory tree.

    Starting from there, you should be able to sort for any date modified,type,etc.
