Patch for Windows, powered by Shavlik

Searching Patch View

You can easily search for specific patches contained in the top pane. All searches are performed using the Search tool.

To initiate a search you simply click in the Search box and then type the text you want to find. Only those patches matching the search criteria are displayed; all other patches are hidden.

Tips for Using the Search Tool

The Search tool works only on the information currently visible in the top pane.

If a Smart Filter is applied, only patches matching BOTH the search criteria and the smart filter criteria are displayed.

All partial matches are displayed. For example, if you search for patches that contain the text acrobat, any patch with "acrobat" in its name will be considered a match (e.g. Acrobat Distiller, Acrobat Reader, etc.).

A semicolon (;) can be used to concatenate multiple search terms into one search string. For example, specifying "chrome;firefox" will return all items containing either of the two terms.

The use of wildcards in the Search tool is not allowed.
