- Searching through txt, pdf, and doc files 12 answers
Here is my scenario and system:
System: Win-7, 64-bit.
Scenario: Very simply, I have a folder on my Dropbox account, titled
\Papers. Within this folder, I have a lot of PDF files, and I have even more sub-folders of various names, also with PDF files.
What I want to do, is simply enter a search word, and have something return all the PDFs starting in the
\Papers root directory that have that keyword.
Is there something that does this seamlessly and nicely? My only other option is to go through my hundreds of PDFs one by one and attempt to sort them like that. I would rather not do that.
P.S. I am open to moving all my PDFs to a cloud storage service that might in fact have such nice search capabilities. If that is easier to do, feel free to bring my attention to it. I am currently only aware of Dropbox and Google Drive.
