Search INSIDE of files

Hi,

I have Windows 7

Is there a way to search INSIDE of files?
How about searching INSIDE of files located on a network share?

Regards,
Terry

Thanks Gary - That's exactly what I was looking for.

zigzag - I have a couple of thousand plain text files (.txt) in which I search the contents. Searching content also includes Word, Excel and other documents which I also search on a regular basis.

Regards,
Terry
