    From here.....
    "There are two more text buttons next to the search field. One is Desktop Preferences and other is Remove Items. Desktop preferences allow you to choose the types of files you would like the program to include in its index out of available ones. You can also point out not to index specific folders from your hard disk. If you share your PC with others, it's a good idea to eliminate your private folders from the Desktop index. You can also specify not to index certain websites from your cached web history as well. The Remove items button allow you to eliminate selected results from the index."

    Hi Doc,

    Thank for the input...during the interim I resorted to the windows explorer option...slow and cumbersome. I'll give the desktop another try with your input.
