    Find all graphics files

    I want to identify all image type files on my Novell server, and wonder if there is an easy way.

    I can create a .fnd file for future reference but, being basically lazy, I wonder if there is not some way within Windows Explorer or Find Files which would let me do this without specifying all of the extensions.

    Re: Find all graphics files

    I hope I'm wrong, but I can't see how Windows could possibly know every singel extension that is a graphic file. You could go to Find & then the advanced tab & choose a type of file, which would pick up one or more extensions, but I don't think it could tell which files result in visual images that a human would call pictures.

    But if you open a graphics program like Irfanview & go to Options/Properties/Extensions tab, you find find almost all the extensions associated with graphic files & then search for them. But, maybe someone knows a way....

    Thanks, Phil.

    I suspect you're right, I do have a list of file extensions which I will try edit then cut and paste.

    I am still hopeing there may be a lazy solution. There are so many tricks I just keep looking for a new ones.
