    Search a folder for a specific file?

    I need my program to be able to search though the computer and find a certain file, say "find.txt" without knowing which folder it is in. Any help? Thanks!

    You can use the File-Folder object and set the folder to search to the root.

    ok, I installed the file-folder object, but I cant find a way to just search in the background (not in a window)
    am I doing something wrong?

    I think he's referring to the file selector dialog.

    Try using the browsing loop commands picklecow.
