Trying to find something in Sharepoint 2010

skbarnard used Ask the Experts™
This is probably an easy question for most of you and one that makes me feel a little stupid but I'm new to the look of Sharepoint 2010, coming from a MOSS 2007 environment.  In MOSS 2007, you were able to click on a web application and then search that application to find a specific site collection (i.e. click on "Mysite" and then search for the individual's mysite page)
First - is this type of search possible in 2010 and
second - where is it or how do I get there (see??? -- the stupid part!)

On the top right you can change the web application you are viewing for.
Are you using Windows auth and importing user profiles, then if you click the user profile service  there is a link to the user profiles. You can search for your person in there. You can also see if the user has a mysite.

You can also use powershell

This was what I was looking for - thanks!
