A hard one to describe, but I'll try.

In windows, when file Explorer is opened you get the little search box at top right which allows you to type in partial file names, keywords, etc. (filters filenames)

In Photoshop CC when you open you get the same filename search box top right.

However when I open a file in CS5 I get no search box. No way to filter filenames.

I'm wondering if there is something I did or if there is a way to get that search / filter box when opening a file in CS5.

This is what Bridge is for. Do you have it installed?

I have CS6, I get the box, but don't use that. I search under edit, find in bridge. That way you can use filenames, keywords, iso and anything else stored in meta-data. If you hit the "+" sign you can add more items to match on to narrow a search. I looked for a way to enable or disable the
Quick Search box up there in the corner but didn't find anything right off. I'll poke around some more.

joe,

Thanks. Appreciate the help. I looked for a way to turn it on...couldn't find one...assume that means no way to turn it off.

I have CS6 and PS CC. I just opened CS6 and I don't see a search feature. I don't recall ever seeing one on any CS version.

In my CS5 the Open File dialog is just an extended version of the standard Windows offering, meaning you can type a filter into the filename box,
e.g. type "IMG_4*" (note the * wildcard) and hit enter if want to see all files in the directory that begin with "IMG_4".

Thanks DP.

Gammy,

exactly what i want. So how do I get it? I've looked for settings in both PS and windows. Can't make it work. (Win 7 64)

Just type the filter spec directly into the filename box and hit Enter to see the results, like this:

Note that this will only provide a filtered view of what's in the target directory - it won't do a recursive search.

If your Open file dialog is substantially different could you post up a screenshot of it?
