Searching for and opening files

To search for a file, simply begin typing in Meta’s search bar. With Meta, you can search for a file using anything you remember about it - filename, concepts, subjects, themes, keywords, etc! The results will update dynamically as you type.

To open a file, you can either click the file’s name or double-click the file anywhere.

Meta also gives you the option the show a file in its folder rather than opening it directly. To show a file in its folder, right-click on the file and select “Show in Folder” from the dropdown menu (you can also click the “Show in Folder” button in the right sidebar).
