...and while I'm at it, where did MS come up with 7 as the name for the new OS? 7 of 9 from Voyager? ;)

In XP, you used to be able to right-click-search any folder for files, but in 7, this seems to have vanished - how do you search a folder for files?

Simple I know, but as I have only just now upgraded my machines to Win7, I feel a little lost with the new GUI, over XP which was very familiar.

EDIT: After searching the net, I found that I can just put the file I am looking for in the main menu search box - clever, and this is easier then XP. :)

QUESTION 2: Where do I find the DirectX 11 download for Win7? I have searched the MS website, and have downloaded a couple of things, but both of which were not the updater I was expecting a'la DirectX 9.0c installer from the days of XP. Is there some special process to updating DirectX in 7?

EDIT: Found it - nevermind...

MODERATORS - I seem to have answered my own questions. :p Perhaps delete this thread...
