comment How to search the content of 7-Zip archives (.7z)?
Yes, this works, and it is quite fast, especially if there is not a lot of matches. But the folder where 7z.exe lives must be in PATH, for example C:\Program Files\7-Zip. However, it does not search the content of files, only the file names and thus does not answer the question.

Copy edited (e.g. ref. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mac_OS_X>). Broke down the wall of text. Added some context. (its = possessive, it's = "it is" or "it has". See for example <http://www.wikihow.com/Use-its-and-it's>.)
