Using Wildcard characters.

In Category: Windows NT 4.0

Wildcard characters are used in searches to make it easier to broaden searches when toy are looking for certain file types and/or file names. Because of long file names, nothing much has changed when it comes to Wildcard characters in searches.

* An asterisk (*) tells the system to look for any characters, no matter how many.
* A question mark (?) tells the system to look for a single character, no matter what.

For example, if you enter can*.* in a search, you will get all of the files that begin with "can." If you enter can.?.tem, you will get all of the .tem files that start with "can."
