Search Google Drive By File Type

Google Drive has a tendency to get very convoluted. It's a fantastic tool, but can be somewhat difficult to find the document you want, especially if you don't remember the exact name of the document you're looking for. Searching in Google Drive can be very easy, and even easier with this simple step that is often overlooked.

In Google Drive the first instinct is to search by a keyword in the search bar. If you look over to the right there is a small "down arrow" that tends to get ignored. If you click that, you invoke various search options to narrow your search by file type, ownership, or visibility. This can help reduce the amount of time spent searching for a doc.
