Can Windows 7 search find text within files the way XP did?

Thank you much!

I have the book "Windows 7 Inside Out" and found no mention of this yet!
I made the change.

I saw no change in the "Search" box so I rebooted.

Still no clue as to, for example, find the word "blue" in *.doc.

I found the word "blue" in *.doc files this way:

find blue in *.doc

XP's search was far more useful.

You can look for some 3rd party search tools that may be to your liking.

Thank you for your help.

It's a shame that this exists with no or little Microsoft documentation.
You should get a Driod. I wanted a user manual that should come with the
phone, and they told me to go to the Internet where I found a PDF that I
downloaded to the Droid.
