HowTo: Windows 7 Search for word with in a file

Posted: 2014-07-30 in Code and Computers

tldr: 

Content:hello world

 

This has been buggin me for ages. In Windows Xp you could search for a text string in files within a directory. 

aka if we have a text file “myTe.txt” and in that we have a string “hello world” then searching in windows 7 for hello world will return no results, in xp it would return  “myTe.txt”

In Windows 7 to do this you need the keyword “Content:” so 

Content:hello world

will return “myTe.txt”
