Default Search within MS-Word and PDF files

What application I can use to search a word or phrase within a MS-Word or PDF file?


Let’s say a friend of mine gave me his address and I wrote it in a MS-Word file, but then I don’t remember the name of the file, so I would like to do a search for every file which contains the word “street”.

Let’s say I was reading an article about brown sugar in a PDF file, but I forgot the name of the file, I would like to find that file to resume my reading, so I would like to do a search for every file which contains the phrase “brown sugar”.

Thank you very much

There is no such application. The google search application does not have option to search inside documemts. You should use your pc for that.
