I copied the "Find Anything Fast" so I could learn from it but yet again windows has let me down......when I click start there is no "FIND""...so if it is there it doesn't show ....(go figure)....just like backing up files there is no backup.
What good is windows if none of this stuff is there??
Can someone help me???

Is this from the NewbieClub newsletter?

If it's a text file, it won't appear on the "start" menu, as that lists only programs. Windows will put it in various places, depending on how you saved it.

My documents - it may be in this folder, at the end of the listing. Or in a sub-folder within My documents.
The directory you were in when you created the file - perhaps the directory that contains the program that you used.

You may find it by using Find - (Win key+F) and searching for the file name, or part of it.

Windows reminds me of my children - sometimes you wish it just wouldn't try to be "helpful"!
