How to find a notepad file with a specific word in it

Hello SevenForums! Right now on my computer, i have a lot of notepad files. In one of those files, it contains a specific word along with some other words. I need to find that notepad file, so how would i search for notepad files containing XXXXXXX? I tried in the top right searchbar, no luck.

I use a program called Locate32 instead of Windows Search.

With that program, I can search my computer for any file. An advanced program option is the ability to search for any specific text you wish. It's slow but it gets the job done for me.

Instead of the search box in Explorer, you can use the Start Search and enter the word or word combo and Windows should find it fairly quickly. If not, you can click the See more Results link at the bottom of the list.
