    Occurrence not found

    As you can see in the pic, I put a file in C:\TEST called Mumbai.docx

    Inside the file is the word Mumbai, but Notepad++\Find in Files doesn't find it.

    Why, what am I doing wrong? Can it only see inside certain file formats?

    Thanks - rev

    docx files aren't actually a single file, but a collection of files. Notepad++ won't be able to search them by default.

    You can view the contents of a docx file by changing the extension to .zip.

    This is just one reason why I save Word files as .doc files, not .docx files.
