I'm having the problem with Notepad
(I thought it was part of the Office Suite.)
My laptop, Acer Aspire, came with Window 7 Home Premium installed, 64 bit.
(AMD Athlon 64 x2 Dual-Core Processor TK-42 1.60GHz)
I went back and experimented with the Find feature on Notepad once again.
-It seems to work most of the time, if I'm at the top of the page, but the Down button must be selected. I guess that's why it is there.
-If I'm at the bottom of the page it does not always work, even selecting the Up button.
-"Match Case" check box seems to be on by default most of the time, even if it is not checked.
All in all, it works, but not all the time; it seems very twitchy. And to be honest I don't really use Notepad that much in depth that I need the find feature. TBH Until I used it this morning I didn't know Notepad HAD a Find feature!
The Office suite I had was Office 2007 trial which ended last month, so I opted to install Office 2003 using a downloaded software for the purpose - I think it was "RipoutOffice2007". Anyway, the office suite is working fine. No complaints thus far.)
