how to search a word or phrase in a file on windows server 2008 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have been looking into on "how to search a word or phrase in a file on windows server 2008", similar to that of Windows XP and I have not been able to find this very useful functionality. I wondered if this functionality has been taken off from Windows Server 2008 or I have not been able to work out how to do it? Would be grateful if someone could please help?

    THANKS

  • Hi, have you tried the advanced search by going to the Start\Search\For Files and Folders? It is located on the right side of the window.

  • Hi,

    You can install Windows Desktop Search for Windows Server 2008 (http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/7/F/37F0E553-3623-4DC8-90DD-1C4AC3F6E158/Windows6.0-KB940157-x86.msu)
