Hello NG,

I am struggling with the windows 7 search.
I somehow can't figure out how to search for a <file> containing <text>
within the windows explorer.

I moved from XP to W7 a few month ago and in XP this is easy so I assume
it should be possible in W7 too, right?

Regards
Rainer

Hi Rainer,

a search of the files / folders which are indexed can be started when you
type your keyphrase into the start menu.
More informations around the builtin windows search can be found here ->
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...windows-search

PS : Not all files/folders are out-of-the-box fulltext indexed therefore
possibly you need to customize that feature for your needs ->
Extending the Windows Search Index

Hello Ramazan,

thanks for you help.
I tried your first link, but that did not tell me any new things.
Your second link seems to require programming knowledge.

Isn't there a "simple" way to search in all files of a folder which
contain a specific expression? Where did the "old" xp search assistent go?

Regards
Rainer

Hi Rainer,

- of course here we go....

Control Panel -> (Switch to classic view) Indexing Options -> Advanced
(Switch to File Types) :

How this file should be indexed ?
"Index Properties Only" or "Index Properties and File Contents"

Here you can now specify which file types should be fulltext indexed.

Hope that helps

Regards
Ramazan

Hi Rainer

As soon as you click on Start, begin typing your search item. I have been
using every version of windows since Win 3 and have never come across
anything as fast as this.

FWIW
