Hello, and welcome to Geeks To Go.
Did you try "gif"?
Just click on the start button and typy "gif",or "jpg",or "jpeg". Do not hit enter.
All of the selected files should show up obove the search box.
Also try a wildcard * (example= *.jpg)
Thank you.

Vista search sucks, worse than XP. It can't find any of my jpegs that I want to delete and I have thousands of them. Even when I key in a sequence of characters that is part of the filenames it fails to find them. I've tried everything.
