In Windows XP it is possible to define a search to find a string in the *content* of a file. For example find all the files with the word 'aardvark' in them. In Windows 7 this appears to be impossible. Why has such a *vital* function been dropped? If it hasn't been dropped why have Microsoft hidden it? I am aware of the alleged 'fixes' for this issue online, but they do not work, so I'm left wondering why the simple option of 'Search for files containing' has been deleted.
