We are surprised to see the number of Vista and Windows 7 users who aren’t using the search bar at the bottom of the start menu productively. It’s really a great feature.

1. Instead of scrolling through your long list of programs, just type the program’s name in the search bar. It will appear at the top of the menu. Just click it and go.

2. If you have more than one hard drive on your computer, you can open either drive by typing in its drive letter in the start menu search form. For example, I have an F:\ drive. If I want to access something on my F:\ drive, I just type F:\ in the start menu search form – the contents of the drive will be displayed in a flash.

These are just a couple of ways you can use the start menu search form to save time!

Try it. We’re betting you like it.
