Just use search.

How to search: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/search-apps-files-settings

Just type the folder name and search the folder. Now you may get  lots of results displayed.
If you get too many results use folder: to restrict the search to get the folders you need.

I don't think windows 8.1 GUI interface will able to find folders.

you will need to use File Explorer for folder(s) search.

also command line with command prompt or powershell will help

command line
dir /w /s *name*

Powershell

Get-ChildItem -path "C:\Users\ -Recurse | ? {$_.attributes -like "directory*"} | select Name,Attributes

Open in new window
