Default Does anyone have Open Office?

I need advice! I know there is a search function where you can search for words inside a document if you have forgotten what you named the doc or where you filed it. DS has helped me with this before but he's not around right now. I know how to search a document that I already have open but can't figure out how to find a particular document that I've lost. Can anyone advise me? thanks!

I have OO but have never used that function.

Windows Explorer will do that:



Use the box in the top right: "Search" and you can narrow that down buy starting with whatever folder you think it might be in.

Thanks! DS came and I was mistaken. The search function isn't in OO. It was in my file manager.
