When I was using Windows XP, I was able to search for my files that contained a defined keyword. But I can't figure out how to do it in Windows 7. I'm only able to get inside text files. How can I do it?

You should be able to search for a keyword using File Explorer. I’m not sure I understand what you mean about only getting inside text files……if you have a search filter set to look for text only, that could limit your searches. Can you give any more details about the process you are using?
