How can I create a shortcut in win98 of the popular "Files or Folders..." utility?

P.S.
To get to the utility without using a shortcut I have to click on "Start" and then go to "Find"

there are many ways in creating shortcut. one of it is find the files that you want to create the shorctcut with. then right click it and a display will pop up. choose create shortcut and the shortcut of your files or folders will appear. cut the shortcut and paste it on the desktop. that's all. this is the most easier way tocreate shorcut.

The answer is unsatisfactory because it does not state how to find the filename of the "Files or Folders..." utility in order to create the shortcut for it

You you need a real shortcut that is placed somewhere on the harddisk, or is a keycombination enough.
In that case you can use:

windows key + F

The find box is opened with a commando i don't now how it goes exactly, but it has something to do with:

explorer.exe using a DDE message that looks like: [OpenFindFile("%1", %I)]

If you want to see this info in windows, look at folder option, ansd then file options, check for saved search.

I noticed that "saved search" is an app that creates files with extension ".fnd". So I thought that if I'm able to create a file with that extension and then click on it it would come up with the "Find files or folders" utility.

It is possible to create a file with extension .fnd if you open "files or folders" and make a search. Then click on "File" on the menu bar and choose "Save search". This will produce a file with extension ".fnd". Then all you need to do is create a shortcut of that file and place it in the startup group and bingo! you get "files or folders" to start up whenever you boot!

Concerning the points I don't know how they are allocated; all I did is just reply to your answer

Ok, but the answer wasn't mine. The answer was from Yvonnesoo saying :

  you can find the filename by using
  windows explorer or find files or
  folders.

I don't think that was the answer you were looking for
