I don't know what OS you're using, but in Win ME open Windows Explorer,
click the Search button (or press ctrl+f). You'll see a new pane open at
the right. You can search for files by name or containing text. In the
Containing Text box, just put the phrase you're looking for and it should
find it in the actual text of the file.
