InFile Seeker
Search text files for words or phrases

InFile Seeker is a free tool which can search vast numbers of text files for the keywords you need.

The program is compact, under 400KB, and runs without installation on anything from Windows 2000 up.

The search procedure works much as you'd expect. Specify a starting folder, the file types to search, enter a keyword and you're ready to go.

InFile Seeker displays any hits in the "Seeking results" tab. There's a list of files, selecting any of these displays it contents with the search keywords highlighted, and you can open the file (or its containing folder) with a click.

Version 1.8:

  • Added support for Windows 10;
  • Added a menu to open files with their default application, Notepad or a custom application;
  • Added the option to save the sought keyword;
  • Improved seeking settings saving;
  • Improved Windows 8 and 8.1 support;
  • Improved the user interface;
  • Bug fixes.

InFile Seeker isn't very configurable. There's no regular expression search here - not even a case-insensitive option. But it's fast and easy to use, and if it suits your workflow then it could be handy.

Windows 10 November 2019 Update ISO (build 1909)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

November 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1090 which is the November 2019 Update.
