Search results

If you press Enter in the Search box then all the files and folders found by your search are shown.

You can now:

  • Click on a result thumbnail to preview it.
  • Click on a result name to open it.

  • Click on one or more of the filter options to switch them on and off and narrow down the search results.

  • Hover over a result and click Actions and select an option from the menu.

  • Select multiple results and click Selected Items to select an action option.
    Tip: The main file actions are available here, but you may find more options available when you preview the file.

    You can delete a file this way but the search results won't be updated until you run a new search.

Note: Click the Search in menu to search in all sites or just in the site you're in.

If you're a Search Manager super user then you'll have an additional Search Manager option you can click where you can create new search filters.

As well as the search box on the toolbar, there are also additional advanced search features for finding people, sites, and content.

Tip: If a file is a Microsoft Office, PDF, or other text-based file type (not an image or video) then you can also click Advanced Search icon on the file preview to search for text in the file.
