Turn on natural language search in Windows 7

Windows 7 has tons of useful features. One of them is the natural language searching feature. You can search files and documents by using search terms in the natural English language. For example, if you want to search for a song by Britney Spears, then search term would be “artist Britney Spears” and Windows 7 would fetch all mp3 files in which artist tags equals Britney Spears. Here is how you can turn on the natural language search :

  1. Open any folder.
  2. From the toolbar, select Organize → Folder and search options. This would open a Folder Options dialog box.

  3. Select the Search tab in the Folder Options dialog box.
  4. Check the checkbox labeled Use natural language search and click OK to save the settings.
