Hello,
I am looking for the old XP search within files function, but in windows 7. I have a bunch of txt files and need to search for txt in them to find which file contains this txt. Who knows where Bill hid this function in 7? Thanks

Try installing Google Desktop and using its search function. Good luck!

Start menu, "Search programs and files", type text to search for. Bill didn't hide it very well!
