7.2 Searching for a Word or Phrase Using Basic Find

Basic Find lets you display items that contain specific subjects, recipients, or words. Find searches all files and folders to look for exact matches.

When you use Find, all items that do not match the criteria you select are hidden from view. Find does not actually move or delete items; it displays certain items based on the criteria you specify. When you clear the Find criteria, the hidden items are displayed.

  1. Open the folder you want to search.

  2. Type a word or phrase in the Search field the upper right corner of the page.

    The word or phrase can be any set of consecutive characters contained in the item you are trying to find.

  3. Select your search scope:

    • This Folder

    • In All Folders

    • In All Folders (others have shared with me)

  4. Choose the item you want from the list of items.

To clear the Find criteria, click the name of the folder in the folder list.
