When searching for content using the File Explorer Search, often it happens that it is not able to find content inside files.
This can be a problem, above all for developers, searching for source files containing some string.
Using the tips in the article How to Make Windows 7 Search File Contents, I've found the following suggestions:
- from the Folder Options, in the Search tab, avoid using the Index and select use "Always search file names and contents"
- from Control Panel, Change How Windows searches, press the Advanced button, in the File Types tab, add a new file extension (or edit exisiting ones) selecting "Index Properties and File Contents"
