Searching for file but forgotten its name

I am searching for a file on my hard drives which I know is there because I saw it a few weeks ago but I can't remember how I named it. I know it is a document but when I type *,doc in the search box I get loads of e-mails and music files. How do I exclude all but genuine Word or publisher files.

  1. leave out the "*" and just type ".doc"
  2. I noticed you typed in a comma in the "*,doc"--I guess you meant to type in a period ("*.doc").

    It is helpful to limit the search behavior with "folder options", also. Click the "search" tab, and uncheck "find partial matches".
