Search and Advanced Search are described in paragraph 4.4.2.

NOTE: The actions you can take in the library and the menu items you see depend on your privileges, both as an individual member and as a member of a group. If you don't have individual or group write access to a folder, you won't be able to upload files to the folder, edit the folder properties, delete the folder or files within the folder, or cut the folder. These menu items won't appear when you right-click on the folder or select the folder's drop-down menu.

The following paragraphs discuss all of the folder options available in the library. Keep in mind that, depending on your individual and group privileges, some of these options may not be available to you.
