Office Search

Find texts inside Microsoft Office, RTF and all text files.

Search inside Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Power Point), LibreOffice (Writer, Calc, Impress), Visio, RTF and text/ASCII files (TXT/CSV/MD/HTML/PHP etc.). For all other files it will use fuzzy logic to check if file is text or binary. If text, it will search contents of the file for a match. Runs on Windows 7/8/10.
