I'm using windows 7 Ultimate.
When I want to search and type it some text in the search box it searches all files on the computer.
So far ok. But what do I do when I only want to search folder names. Say I am searching for "private" but I only want to find folders whose name contains "private" how do I do this?

if you click on see more results it should show you the folder names also.

The following page is for Windows Vista search advanced techniques, but it applies to Windows 7 also.  Note that you would use as part of your search item the phrase "kind:folders" in order to accomplish what your question is about:
