    Multi-string searches

    I believe from comments made before here that it is possible to search for more than one string of characters at a time in the Windows Explorer 'Find', but I have looked in the help and can't find anything to say how. Would someone tell me the syntax please?

    Many thanks

    Re: Multi-string searches

    Well. just separating the file names with a semi-colon and space works here. e.g.:<pre>file1.txt; file2.exe</pre>

    etc.

    Leif - great, thanks! So why couldn't they have just said so in the Windows Help?!
