    OneDrive content search (words inside documents) (app and web)


    Hello,

    Is it possible to search words content inside a document using android app or even the web version of onedrive?


    I can just search file by it´s names, but i can´t find any files by the content inside the words documents, for example.


    Thanks!

    :)

  2. Avoid getting OneDrive search results for local files

    In Windows 10, how can I avoid getting search results that link to files online in OneDrive (and open a web browser when you click them) when those files also reside locally? I want just the local files, so that when I choose a result, the local app opens.

    For background, here the problem report I submitted via the Windows 10 Feedback app:

  3. Content search not working, search is not showing the documents containing the searched words.

    Original Title - Content search not working

    I have a new Windows 10 Professional which I am positively surprised with after switching from Windows XP. Unfortunately, the file content search is not working. This is something I use everyday for my work. Every day I must search through over 600 Word
    documents. I tried using advanced search in the File Explorer, ticked File contents search in non-indexed locations even though I set my usual folders to be indexed. Still, the search is not showing the documents containing the searched words.

    I noticed a very interesting thing, though. If I create a Word document under the new system, the file content search works perfectly. However, if I have documents created elsewhere (and I have just transferred my huge archive from another computer) the
    search does not work.

    There is also one trick I discovered. If only I modify the document a little bit, even by adding one space, and save it again, the content search works fine.

    I do not have time to modify every document I have, it would very time consuming. I also get loads of documents from other sources and it would be pointless for me to edit them all, save and only then be able to search through them.

    Has anyone encountered this issue?
