    You can Search by pulling on Charms Bar and click on Search or you can click on Run and type in Command Prompt. I don't know what to type in Command Prompt like Find or something. When I type in Find for a split second there's a black Dos Command windows appearing then disappearing. In other words, I'm trying to find a shortcut to Search by pulling the Charms Bar. Thanks.

    There is no short cut from Command Prompt for Windows search.

    You can search from the command prompt by using dir/s.
    For example, if you want to find the file, "schedule.txt" you would enter:
    cd\ (to search from the top level of the C drive)
    dir/s schedule.txt <enter>
    Searching from the top level can take a minute or more.
