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 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.

  • Seek() in VIX, VDDK? How to search for a specific position

    I am use to using seek() in Perl to access a part of the disk I want to read. Is there a seek() in the VIX, VDDK? It doesn't look like it, then, how would I do that?

    Search (BLOB, 512, 0);           / * go to 512 bytes in position * /.

    Read (BLOB, $type, 8);        / * read 8 bytes * /.

    I think I might use VixDiskLib_Read to search and read, but I don't know if I have the right settings.

    UInt8 buf [VIXDISKLIB_SECTOR_SIZE];             / * 512 * /.

    VixError vixError = VixDiskLib_Read (disk. Handle(),

    appGlobals.startSector, / * this is 0 * /.

    1, buf);                                     / * I don't know what number I want here. I need 8 bytes to get the type of reading * /.

    Thank you



    IMHO, you have to read entire sectors, because it comes from the normally minimum data will deliver amount a disk API.

    You want to read the first 8 bytes of the sector 1:

    VixDiskLib_Read (disk. Handle(),

    1, / / start with sector 1 (512 to 1023 bytes)

    1, / / read a sector

    Chamois); Buffer for 512 bytes

    The first 8 bytes of the buffer contain the information you want to have...

  • 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'

  • Why did my web page jump down and search for programs and files on my computer analysis at the same time? This happens on a regular basis.

    I ran scans for malware with malwarebytes and microsoft windows defender and all have developed negative. Also did a clean reinstall of the windows operating system. With the help of a new mouse that works fine on another computer. Am not touch anything on the keyboard when it arrives. It is really strange, when the web page I'm on (the fact on any web page) jumps down.

    Have you tried safe mode?
    Try Firefox Safe mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe mode is a troubleshooting mode that temporarily disables hardware acceleration, restores some settings and disables add-ons (extensions and themes).

    If Firefox is open, you can restart Firefox Safe mode in the Help menu:

    • Click the menu button

      click Help

      then select restart with disabled modules.

    If Firefox does not work, you can start Firefox in Mode safe as follows:

    • On Windows: Hold down the SHIFT key when you open the desktop Firefox or shortcut in the start menu.
    • On Mac: Hold the option key during the startup of Firefox.
    • On Linux: Exit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox-safe-mode
      (you may need to specify the installation path of Firefox for example/usr/lib/firefox)

    When the Firefox Safe Mode window appears, select "start mode safe."

    If the problem is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, theme or hardware acceleration. Please follow the steps described in the section Troubleshooting extensions, themes and problems of hardware acceleration to resolve common Firefox problems to find the cause.

    To exit safe mode of Firefox, simply close Firefox and wait a few seconds before you open Firefox for normal use again.

    When find you what is causing your problems, please let us know. This might help others with the same problem.

  • Under XP I could search for a string in all the files on my computer. I can't find this search function of SMEs on Windows 7. Anyone?

    On Windows XP, there is a search function to search for a string in any kind of files on your computer. You are looking for a specific name was easy, if you fogort what kind of file, this name occurred in or what it was named.

    On Windows 7 it only allows searching for a name of a file.  How to search for strings in file names?  29/12/12 Paul Figueroa

    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.

  • 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
