Join Jess Stratton for an in-depth discussion in this video Searching your files, part of Migrating from Office 2013 to Google Apps.
- Just like you can search your Desktop files…using your operating system, you can search…for your files that are on Google Drive.…Before you search, don't forget…that if it's a file you accessed recently,…it's probably listed right at the top in the Recent section,…and if it's a file that somebody shared with you,…you can find that in the Shared with me section.…Also, if it's for a file that you know…that you'll be using a lot, or if it's for a current project…that you're working on, you can add a star…to the file to mark it as a favorite.…
To add a star, right click on the file and select Add star.…You'll see a star beside it,…and now, if you want to find that file quickly,…choose the Starred section from the navigation bar.…Let's search for some files.…In its simplest form, you can type words or phrases…in the search bar and find your file that way.…Google Drive will search the contents…of your document, as well as the document title.…In fact, while you're typing, as you can see,…search results will be popping up…

Q: Will this course help me migrate from Office 365 to Google apps?
A: It will if you use the desktop version of Office 365. If you use the Office 365 apps online through a web browser only, this course will be helpful in terms of general concepts, but there are enough differences between the desktop and online versions of Office that many specific instructions won't apply.
