Hey Sperodev,

Once if you give the files for to search, it will automatically search files inside subdirectories.

Also there is an option to specify the subdirectories.

1. Take the "Search for Files" GUI.
2. Enter the file to search
3. In this GUI you can see the "Browse" button.
4. Click the "Browse" button and specify the subdirectory which you need.
5. For example : /home/shan/... like this you can specify the subdirectory.

If you are not satisfied with GUI search result, take the system console and do a "grep" of files.

Hi Sperodev,

It defaultly searches in subdirectories. I suppose you want suppress the search in the current directory.
If you still need it, then switch your GUI Console from GNOME to KDE.
