    How to get search option in Start menu in Windows 7




    I cannot find Search option unlike in the old Start menu in Windows 7!! I know we can find the files through the bar provided in windows, but I am not comfortable using that.
    Is there a way to get the search option back where an animated dog used to appear while searching for files

    Hi,

    Windows 7 functionality is same but the user interface is changed a bit.
    You cannot use the old search option as it is replaced with the new search options . You can go back to the classic windows menu in Windows 7 but you cannot use the old search option provided in Windows XP.

    It is easy to use Windows 7 search as all the new features are hard to use at initial level and you fill it is easier to search in windows 7 in the near feature.

    It is fast(if you set indexing) and easy to use.

    Hi,

    I never said search option is not available in Windows XP, what I told you is Windows 7 search is something different from Windows XP, you cannot get the same search option in Windows 7 which is available in Windows XP.

    Let me know if you have any queries
