Two options in the Customize Start Menu dialog box let you customize the behavior of the Start menu search box:
• Search Other Files And Libraries The default setting, Search With Public Folders, includes in a Start-menu search the same document files and folders that are included in other searches . (For details, see "Configuring Search and Indexing Options" on page 308.) With the other settings, you can limit the scope of a search to exclude public folders, or you can completely disable the search of documents and folders
• Search Programs And Control Panel With this option selected (the default setting), searches look for program names and Control Panel tools or tasks that match your search text.
For more information, see "Searching from the Start Menu" on page 319.
