Search for an item

The Search tool, located at the top right corner of the interface, allows users to search for a specific file. By default, Search will search all files in the home directory. You can also limit the search to the document root at/home/user/public_html, or to the directory displayed in the file window.

To search for a file, perform the following steps:

  1. Use the Search menu to choose the directory to search: All Your Filesonly public_html or Current Directory.
  2. Enter the desired file name in the text box.
  3. Click Go.

A new window displays the filenames that match your search. To go to a folder, or to the containing folder for a file, double-click the desired item in the list. If there are no files that include your search term, you will see the message No records found.
