How to search for a document based on the contents of the document

on windows xp, I could search a document based on a combination of search criteria, including part of the name of the document or a word or phrase in a document. How is a search based on the content on Windows 7?

In general, you can simply type the content in the search box and it will find.  It highlights the content that it matched in the search results (kind of like an online search).  Here's an example where I typed the word "liberation".

You can also combine this with the file name searches.  For example, you can type *.xls release to find all the Excel files with the word "release" in them.  If your sentence content includes spaces, put double quotes around it 'product release 12' for example.

  • How to search for a specific file on the computer?

    Original title: How can I search for a file by name only. For example, to prevent the display of other files that contain the same text.  This was easy to do under XP.

    For example, I need to find FILES named xyz*.mdl.  I need to filter all files that CONTAIN "xyz*.mdl" but are note NAMED "xyz*.mdl".

    This was easy in XP, but not in "7".

    Help, please.

    Thank you


    You can use the syntax:

    filename:xyz * .mdl

    Note that file:xyz*.mdl is equivalent to filename:xyz * .mdl, but an additional symbol ~ is necessary with the equivalent of the so-called name: ~ xyz * .mdl to properly manage the wildcard character.  (file name, file and the name are supposed to be the same)

    How can I dynamically use the right of itemrenderer based on the value of the field? THANKS FOR ANY HELP PROVIDED!

    The best

    You can have more than 1 column renderer engine. There are two ways to do this. One way would be to use States. A State for each possible value in the data. Since you either want a button (data == 'open') or a label (data == 'Full') by using the States wouldn't be a bad choice.

    Alternatively, you can use a canvas instead of a VBox. Make a label and a button with horizontalCenter = "0" "0" = red to make them each other. Make it visible according to the data value:

    where dataField is the value of the property dataField on this converter DataGridColumn.

    in the list of exceptions of cookies (Preferences-> privacy) I would need a search to a specific part of the name of cookie, which is < www.*.org & gt; < * research * of *. * > etc...
    A perfect solution would deliver the use of wildcard characters. Too much!

    Such a solution is currently available?
    Maybe like add-on?

  • How to search for and remove text in the Arial Narrow font?


    I wonder if someone can help me with a problem.

    I have a great CS5 ID doc (Win 7) that has thousands of lines in the following format:

    Example: reach, reach to yari togemasu (togeru)

    In each line the first, or the words is in English all formatted in Arial Black. then, there is a space followed by words in a foreign language (in the Japanese case). These words are all in Arial condensed format.

    I would like to be able to delete all the words automatically formatted in Arial condensed (Japanese words).

    There should be a way to do that in FIND/REPLACE, but I don't see an option to find words in a specific font and then delete them.

    Can anyone suggest how this can be done automatically, so I can't do the manual removal?

    Thanks in advance for any help that anyone may be able to offer.


    What version of InDesign are you using?

    If you go to find the change

    Then let empty 'Search' and ' change to ' white

    Go to the 'FindForma' t and insert the font that you want to change

    Do not fill in 'Change of Format'

  • How to search for a Word document in Windows 8?

    I'm stumbling around Windows 8 that came pre-loaded on my new laptop.  I ordered Windows and Excel to be included in the package.  I saved a number of documents in Word, and now I need to get these documents for a particular.  I looked on the Internet and found a lot of no-help, that is to say, 'go in search of a file'.  Excuse me, but if I could find searching a file, I could probably find out how to search for the file, Huh?  Thus,.

    Could someone please help me with: how to find a Word document (1) and (2) where is the infamous "search"?

    I did the thing 'sweep to the right side of the screen"to get those things shadow to appear, and click on the magnifying glass (which I think the engineers forgot to change when they changed everything!) and if I wanted to search for apps, I'd be in great shape.  But his files I'm looking for, Word documents.  The designers of this 'new' version improved - well, new, in all cases seem to have forgotten those of use who use computers for productive work and not socialize or play games.

    Sorry for the hike and whining, but I'm very frustrated that the tasks that were once very simple are now extremely difficult to fill.

    It's pretty easy, at the beginning screen just type the name of your document and right it will bring the search screen and you select files (files, settings, Apps). Take a look at:

  • Please, give me an advise how to search for a number in a file xml (as3.0)

    Hello! Sorry for the troubling.

    Please, give me an advice how to search for a number in a file xml (as3.0)

    Thank you!

    My answer was based on your question to find numbers anywhere in the data to an xml file.  If you know that the data is digital data and the names of the nodes that contains this data, you do not have to check the characters and can only check numerical data using string values...

    function searchXMLFile(Event:MouseEvent):void
    searchDisplay.text = "";
    var pageList:XMLList = xmlFileToSearch.receipt.number;
    searchDisplay.text = "false";
    for (var i: int = 0; i< pagelist.length();="">

    If (pageList [i] == searchInput.text) {}
    searchDisplay.text = "true";


    Even if you are looking for individual digital characters in the previous code that you would have always done by a false exit due having the line 'false' always cancel the real line...

    If (t.toString () .indexOf (m_sSearchTerm)! = - 1).


    searchDisplay.text = "true";


    searchDisplay.text = "false";  This will always overwrite the textfield

    Oh, what you want is the content property.

    content: ~ = Figueroa

    [Update: apparently special search symbols such as ~ = do not work with the content when property indexed research places, but work during the search in unindexed locations.]

    I should mention that Windows 7 Search is not case sensitive, so it makes no difference to try to find upper or lower case letters.  In addition, Windows 7 Search is not able to search the contents of files that have no file extension.  There is also a weird question having to watch in Indexing Options to determine which file extensions are defined for content, research, where you have a type of unusual file that is not defined for the content of the search.

  • How to search for words and phrases in multiple pdf documents

    Dear Sirs.

    I need to search for words AND phrases in a huge amount of PDF files (over 5000). The problem I found by using the "advanced search" is that I am able to search for single words sentences individual GOLD, but I need to combine a lot of words and multiple expressions in the same search. For example, if I need to look for instances of the word 'Florida' or 'Texas' or 'United States', I can't search for each PDF file that contains the word 'Florida' or 'Texas' or the phrase 'United States', since if I put 'word' in the search options, I will receive all the files that contain the word "Florida" or 'Texas' but also 'solidarity' or 'States' and simple words. I tried placing quotes in the words I need to research such as phrases, but it did not work. I would like to know if there is a way I can search the way I need.

    Thanks in advance.
