  • I already use Windows 10, but as far as I remember already in windows 7 search works for office files' content too – Máté Juhász Nov 29 at 10:02

If you wish Windows Search to search Excel files, you need to set it up.

  • Run Control Panel > Indexing Options
  • Click Advanced
  • Find and click xlsx
  • Tick Index Properties and File Contents
  • Click OK
