If you’re sick of navigating through folders and control panels trying to find the options you need, then you probably appreciate the ‘search’ feature in Windows 7, which allows you to type in a few keywords in order to find any tool or application that you require.
But what if you don’t want to type in the name of each individual application in order to change your computer settings?

To find any particular setting, simply type a name into the search bar in the top right corner.
