How to use wildcard characters

You can use the following wildcard characters while specifying search parameters:

Character

Meaning

?

any character

#

any digit

*

any number of characters

Note: if you want to search for items with names containing spaces, enclose search queries in quotations marks, for example “Chapter 15.txt”.

Sample search phrases:

1) Book.txt - only text files with this very name will be found.

2) *.txt - all text files with any names will be found.

3) H*.jpg - all jpg files whose names start with H will be found.

4) #.txt - all text files whose names consist only of one digit will be found, for example, 2.txt or 7.txt, but not 12.txt, A.txt or Ñhapter 5.txt

5) “Chapter ##.txt” - all text files whose names start with the word Chapter followed by any two digits after a space will be found, for example, Chapter 12.txt, but not Final book - Chapter 12.txt

6) ?.txt - all text files whose names consist of only one character will be found, for example 2.txt, a.txt, B.txt, but not 35.txt or My book.txt

7) “Chapter ?.txt” - all text files whose names start with the word Chapter followed by any character after a space will be found, for example, Chapter 1.txt or Chapter A.txt

8) “*pter 12*” - files of any types whose names contain pter 12 will be found, for example, Chapter 122.txt, Final book - Chapter 12.txt, Helicopter 12A.jpg

9) You can specify several phrases at once using spaces to separate them, for example: *.txt *.mp3 - all text and all mp3 files with any names will be found.
