The Windows 8.1 Search box
Enter a phrase, word, or char in the Windows search box to look for an item in the current folder in Windows 8.1. The search begins as soon as you begin typing, so if you enter "Windows," for example, all the files with names starting with the letter Windows will appear in the file list.

Important info (c) Microsoft
Depending on how many files you have and how they're organized, it might be a lot of work to always browse to each particular file you need. To save time and effort, use the search box to search for files.

The search box is located at the top of every window. To search for a file, open a folder as a starting point for your search, tap or click the search box, and start entering your search term. The search box filters the current view based on the text that you enter. Files are displayed as search results if your search term matches the file's name, tags or other properties, or even the text inside a document.
