  1. Trying to search for .txt file


    Hi folks,

    Windows 10 64 bit sys

    I am in dire need of everyones help please!

    A couple years back I created a .txt file on my pc, now trouble is that I forgot the name of the file and I forgot where I put it.

    Im just after some ways I can try search my entire PC effectively instead of sitting through file explorer.

    If there is any tool out there or any methods to look for only .txt files, sort them by date and try find the file I would appreciate it so much.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best,

    :)

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    I want to be able to generate a .txt file that lists all the files and folders in a specific folder on my PC, but don't know the name of any programs that do that. Searched on google a bit and came up with this guide, but it's for XP and I can't seem to find some of the folder options to modify the .bat file. Any suggestions? Thanks

    EDIT: The .bat file will do what I want if it is in the folder I want to do it in, but the option I want to add is having the right click option that it shows.

  3. Find a word in a lot txt files

    beats me. but it is faster using grep. what's more, in a business if you were scan through tens of thousands of documents the time saved would really add up. just saying.

    the OP has a bunch of txt files and he is trying to avoid doing what you suggested because it takes forever when youve got a bunch of files.

  4. Trying to search for .txt file

    Generating a .txt based file list in Windows 7

    No, that > bla.txt is the target file to write to. You could use a wildcard in the argument, ie c:\windows\*.txt which would list all dlls in c:\windows. But adding that to a simple right-click would be tricky.

    Basically you would execute fancyfile.bat c:\windows\*.txt, fancyfile.bat would then write all .txt files to bla.txt.
