Using search in Windows 7

metamatic asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I've just upgraded to Windows 7 from Windows XP.

On my old XP system i used to regularly search a folder for JPEG files under a specific size (48KB).

In Windows 7 the search seems to be much more basic and there doesn't seem to be an option to select files of a specific size - only within preset boundaries.

Have i missed something or is Windows 7 search really that basic?

If it is then can anybody suggest any free (or cheap) third party alternatives or (even better) is there a way to revert back to the classic XP search?
