    How to Seach for Documents with specific name and specific phrase in File Explorer


    In Windows 10 File Explorer, is there an AND operator that will allow you to seach for documents with a specifc name and which contain a specific phrase?For instance, can I search for documents with name:"Operating Agreement" which also contain the phrase "termination for cause"?I understand how to do either of these searches separately. It is running them together i.e as an AND that I cannot figure out. This used to be easy to do with Windows XP. I don't know why that was ever changed.

    :)

  2. How to find specific phrase in search of all files in Documents folder

    Dear DaveM121:

    I love you and you have saved my life. Thank you a gigantic huge much.

    Actually, to clarify for future readers of this thread, what I typed was:

    Contents: "for goodness' sake"

    The phrase has to be in quotes or the system won't look for the specific phrase. And, yes, now the system finds only the documents with the specific phrase.

    Best regards,

  3. Windows 10 search for a specific folder name and file name

    Carlos: Thanks for your reply. What you suggest is what I have been doing. I search for folders with a specific name and get a list. Then I have to search each folder for a specific file. So it's a two step search and that's what I was trying to avoid.

    I assume there are applications out there that allow for an "AND" search in Windows. I'll try that approach.

    Thanks, again.
