You can search current document, open documents or by folders. The results appear on the bottom, you can click a result which will open the file on the line it appears. You can also also filter what files you are searching.
I wondered about this because I'll sit here and edit/delete dozens of files in short order while customizing something and it occurred to me I'm going to be it keeping it busy. It has to be updating the index constantly when you're working. That being said, the indexer was using very little resources when I checked in Task Manager, and I got a lot done yesterday and completed a project using the expanded Windows search. Can you say more about it maybe not reading files correctly?
I'm not entirely sure anymore, but the main difference between 7 and 8 may be that the latter can fully display Unicode (that is: even Emojis) due to its internal UTF-16 architecture. I have no clue why one would favor 7 over 8 (other than license reasons). I don't care about the outdated phpBB installation in this case; but I understand the view of judging a software by how it is presented - I also fall for that sometimes when I see too many blatant mistakes all around before even considering a download.
Yes: it requires filters to read file formats correctly. Which may be a cool thing for one and the wrong approach for another - I rather trust text editors searching thru files to also recognize each text file's encoding correctly and by that matching what I'm search, than trusting Windows and its maybe-installed/maybe-not/maybe-incorrectly-programmed filters (read about Bush hid the facts and you'll get an idea on how "good" Windows has been in the past). I have never tested Windows Search throughly, tho - maybe it's more robust than I think, but I just don't want to find out anyway, as it relies on too many details, in contrast to other programs being able to search files.
