#78 Customize Find in files, Location and Search Type

With the Find in Files window showing, you can change the Look In: combo box to anything except for open docs and current docs.  This will enable the Look at these file types: option to select what files to search for.

And for more advanced searching…

There’s an ellipse “…” button next to the Look In: combo box. Pressing this will pop up the Choose Search Folders.  Here you can create a set of folders to search in. And now you can find your custom folder set as a Look in: option. Watch the video – it’s much easier to understand 🙂
