search file contents getting worse
As a software development expert I'm amazed how microsoft are making simple search more and more complicated, more and more annoying.
In Windows 2000 you pressed F3 typed in a folder to look in, a file name pattern and optionally a word to search in the files. 1 click 3 strings that's it.
In XP few more clicks were required (Search ALL etc.).
In windows 7, how do you search files with a file name pattern and with a string in its contents?
