Windows 7 - search in Windows Explorer - search with a leading zero in the string

    Question

  • Windows 7 - search in Windows Explorer - I’m trying to do a search in file contents for 01234 but it also finds files with 1234.

    How do I do I get it to search for files with exactly 01234?

    The search is ignoring the leading zero.

    I opened Windows Explorer and use the search box in the upper right hand corner. I’ve entered:

    01234

    “01234”

    ‘01234’

    contents:01234

    contents:“01234”

    contents:‘01234’

    It finds files with 01234 but also returns files with just 1234 in it.
