Search by File Type in Windows 10

In Windows 10, you can search for files by type. For instance, in this article, I opened Start and typed files:pdf and Windows returned a list of PDF files on my computer:

See? I have a pretty long list. Note the scroll bar on the right.

If you’re looking for a list of all the PNG files on your computer, type: “Photos:PNG” (no quotes, of course). Or if you have a troop of music files, type Music:MP3 and you’ll get a list of MP3 music files. You get the idea.

You can do the same thing for Apps, Settings, Folders and more. Just follow the same syntax of “file-type:specifier”.

The only easier way to find what you’re looking for is just ask EB! That’s what I do. “Hey! EB! Where’s my paycheck?”
