I want to search the content of text files using Windows 7. I am unable to find stuff like
.txt files that contain text like
asd**xyz**asd, not even with the file search option enabled.
Notepad++ has a feature for searching text in finds ('Find in files' tab under the regular ctrl+f search), and it's a pretty useful text editor in general.
You can use "find" command in command interpreter (cmd.exe). To gain more help, enter:
find "text to find" files_to_find_in_-_can_be_wildcard
