How to search for emails, files, and images sent in hotmail

Something that happens very often is that we send an email, which after a few days, weeks or even months, is important, and we need to read it again; or even, some file that we sent or was sent to us, is only in an email from a long time ago, so the options to recover it are sometimes unknown. There is no shortage who tries to throw a nail among all the mails and go review one by one, is an epic task, which although it works, involves a huge amount of time and work that we probably do not have.
The option that I give you now is the best, and with which you can find whatever you are looking for, if it is in your mail, with this form you will find it. Fast and easy.

To start, on the main page of Hotmail, you must click on the search box in the top left of the screen, by doing so, a small menu like the one shown in the image will be displayed.

In this you can try selecting between "Photos", "Documents" and other options, if you know exactly what it is you are looking for. You can do it by putting the name of the file if you know it well, or just a keyword that you think is in the name of the file or document. This helps them meet. Surely you will see many options within which most likely will be what you are looking for, but if it occurs in the case that simply does not appear, you can try another option. This can happen because actually the name you put, or the keyword you thought was in the name of the file, is simply not there. It is common for these details to be forgotten.
For this you must select the option "Advanced search" where another search menu will be displayed, it is much more detailed, where you can put data such as: the mail or name of the person who sent it, or to whom it was sent, the subject that I had the mail, some keywords that can help find the file or mail you are looking for, as well as specify in which folders it may be, so the search is delimited. Apart from this you can place the range of dates in which the mail can be found, from which date and with an interval of how many days.

When filling out the form, click on "Search" and the process will begin. It may take a few minutes, so you must be patient, but surely when you finish, this search will result in options where the mail or file you are looking for will surely be.

With this you will save a lot of time and work. So it is highly recommended that the emails that are read are not deleted, as they may be useful later, as in these cases. You never know when you will need that email where you sent us or send us a file, but with this you are completely prepared for any circumstance.
