You can try using file*.* to search for anything with file as part of the name. But from what you're saying here if file 4 was on the computer then it would have found it. If it's a hidden or system file that may be why it doesn't show. You need to set your folder options to show all files.

You can do this from a DOS prompt. type in the following commands, hit enter after each line

cd\

dir file*.* /s /a

I believe that you can use the same search syntax that you use in search engines.

So, if you went with +file +4
or "file 4"
you should get just the one file.

I'm with TheChas. "File 4" will do it.

Certainly correct
"File 4" will display only exact matches
