It is also integrated into Konqueror and Dolphin as Find File in the Tools menu. Being equipped with a graphical user interface, it is often handier than the command line tool named find which requires advanced skills in instruction syntax formulation. A search is configured in a 3-tab window. The Name/Location tab Specify a file name use wildcards * and ? in the name Specify a starting directory Decide whether you want to also search sub-directories Specify whether the search should be case-sensitive Specify whether hidden files to be shown as well The Contents tab Select the file type to be search Specify the search term it can be useful to have '*' set in the file name field in the Name/Location tab Select case sensitivity Should binary files be searched? Note A Contents search is necessarily much slower than a filename search, so be as specific as you can when defining it. The Properties tab Find files by creation date Limit the criteria by age - e.g. "during the previous 2 hours" Find files by size - e.g. "At Least 2 MB" Limit the result to files owned by a specific user or group All criteria set will be honoured in your search - you are not limited to the specifications in one tab, so you could search for any file in the directory /home or any directory below that, containing the word "Silkstone" which must be capitalized, and is owned by the group "Accounts".
