Can Notepad++ Find Files by Name on My Hard Drive - Not Just Content of Files?
Windows 7 Desktop
I’ve been using Notepad++ for several years, but never to its full potential. I only recently found the “Find in Files” search tool. However, because I am on a Windows 7 machine, I am always looking for a better search tool to find files on my hard drive.
So, I was wondering if Notepad++ has a feature that allows us to search on the hard drive for a file by name.
After searching on Google and in this forum for keyword phrases such as “Can Notepad++ find files by name,” I have not found any reference to this question having been answered. So I thought I would open the topic.
The plug-ins you will find here make it possible to open files in Notepad++ by name (or by path\name) that you have added to a “solution”. I have no idea what performance you could expect if you added an entire hard drive as a solution, however…
I would try cygwin + find.
