anyweb Posted December 19, 2007 Report post Posted December 19, 2007 Natural Language Search in Windows Vista I just stumbled upon something in Windows Vista that totally made my day (considering I'm writing this at 6:00am on a flight down to San Jose, at least I suspect it will make my day... until my head hits the pillow again!) A few years ago, I was hooked on a Microsoft-internal desktop search tool called FindMyStuff. It was a research project that ended up spawning the first version of MSN Desktop Search... which eventually became Windows Desktop Search.

And I thought it disappeared. But it turns out Windows Vista has something similar. I don't know why I didn't know about this until three minutes ago when I found it in Search Options. I was messing around with some of the settings when I found an (unchecked!) checkbox for "Use natural language search" in Folder and Search Options: more info > http://mike.spaces.live.com/Blog/cns!F...!7837.entry Quote Share this post Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
