    Lightbulb Windows Search: Find files with Ratings

    Here are some tips for searching files that have ratings!

    Open Windows Search (F3 key from the desktop) or from the Start Menu. You can even access the search box from Windows Explorer.

    In the search box enter: Rating:>0 Star

    This will find all files that have a rating of 1 to 5 stars. But lets try some advanced parameters to really narrow the results.

    Find files with a rating of 1 star
    Rating:1 Star

    Find files with a specific rating 2, 3, 4 or 5. In the example below we are searching for 4 star ratings
    Rating:4 Stars

    Find files with a rating in a range. To find files rated from 2 to 4 we use
    Rating:>1 stars <5 stars

    nice tip, but i think most of the users only rate the music files more as compared to other file types, but good to get list of fav songs easily...

    True. Aside from music you can also rate videos (.WMV), images (jpg & tiff) and Office docuents. Internet shortcuts (favorites, .URL, htm). I cant rememeber for sure, but I think you can also rate XPS docunents.

    Likewise for tagging.

    On the topic I wish I could tag and rate PNG's.

    yeah we can rate many files in vista but i stated that music files are more rated by users as while we adds them in our playlist, we rate them too usually...in comparison to all other files...
