Abstract

A method is described to search for documents that is limited to finding documents that are viewed only within the context of a folder that meets the search criteria. Other documents are eliminated from the search, so the searching is more efficient. A folder of information can be thought of as a collection of information similar to a folder in a filing cabinet.
