Searching Files and Text (Classic Look)

When searching for files in Windows XP using the built-in search feature in the Windows Explorer. You might see a little animated character (generally its a dog) in the lower left corner of the window.

Some people prefer the classic look, which means searching without the animated character. If you like this feature skip this article now, if you don't like this feature read on.
  • The quickest way to access the file search window is by clicking an empty area of the taskbar and pressing F3.
  • Click the 'Change preferences' link.
  • Click the 'Without an animated screen character' link.
These steps will cause the animated character to disappear. Although, you can bring it back at anytime, just by repeating the steps above.
