Using Windows 7 Search to delete ‘obj’ folders

Visual Studio will create ‘obj’ folders within your solution to store a bunch of temporary files. You can remove these files in a number of ways.
One easy way is to use Windows 7 Search to look for all the ‘obj’ folders and just delete them manually.
To do this I use the ‘kind’ keyword in the query box.


Tip: Just typing ‘kind:’ will give you a list of choices to choose from.
