Use this control to open the menu seen on the right. It shows the three ‘Find‘ features available in this music player. These searches only look in the names of songs for the text you enter.

 

These controls are common to all three ‘Find‘ methods.

  • Image shows a drop-down with previously used search text in it. Use the drop-down to select from previously used search texts or type in a new one. The drop-down lists all of the search texts used by the three ‘find‘ functions. The text can be up to 60 characters long. All of the standard file name characters can be used. Case is not a factor.
    NOTE: Search texts combined with a semicolon (;) used by the ‘On Storage Devices‘ search feature are not shown in this control.

    • Image shows the control used to remove the selected text from the drop-down. Use this control to delete the selected search text.
    • Image shows the control used to remove all text entries from the drop-down. Use this control to delete all of the search texts.
    NOTE: The player does not ask you to confirm the delete, it is processed immediately and the entries are removed from the drop down.
