      There are many extensions for different movie formats: AVI, MOV, M4V, etc.  My folders contain several of them.  But when I attempt to search by Kind:Movie in the search box, I get no response of any files, even though I know that I have files of the above types in the child folders.

      Try searching other terms. Those file types are often referred to as “video.”

      Bingo!  I was searching on the wrong type, as you replied.

      So where do I find a list of file types that equate to each ‘Kind’ in the dropdown?

        Sometimes it’s a guessing game. Use Roget’s Thesaurus. 🙂  🙂
