Just like its name, Find Text is a software for finding a specific text inside many files; e.g. doc, xls, txt, htm, php, css, etc. This software is totally different with Search facility on Windows because that facility is only able to search text on files title, not inside them.
The benefit of this software is very sensed. For instance, when we are learning programming, we look for a function. Unfortunately, we don’t know where is that function implemented. As a consequence, we have to open and close, back and forth, maybe hundreds of files. Very exhausting.. 🙁 But with Find Text, bye bye exhaustion 🙂
You only have to do few easy steps:
- Type text you are looking for.
- Determine directory where finding will be started.
- Determine file extension or just type *.* if you want to find inside all files.
- Click Find! All files contain text you long for will be shown. See image below.
Execute file directly on Find Text window.
If file extension already related to an application, with just double click on name of file resulted from finding, the application will open the file for you. For knowing whether extension has already related or not, do right click, then choose Properties. On “Open with” part will be shown application name that used to open related file.
