I want to search only in the file contents, not in file name, path.... There has to be a "File content" icon next to "Libraries" ... "Internet" (look at the screenshot) under "Search again in" but i have none...

Ehmm... Maybe I just don't get your question, but it (your screenshot) just says Search again in: Libraries Custom Internet File Contents

That explains a lot.

The File Contents option will show from the moment that you start a search.

If i start to search then there shows up the "Search again in:" and a list of hits is build, but there is no "Dateiinhalt" (or "File contents" in english). There is only the "Libraries" ... "Internet"!

Now i solved this...
->
If you search inside a folder which is indexed, then the explorer searches both in filename/type/properties AND content. But then there is no option to search again in "File contents". So you canīt search only in "File contents".
If you search inside a folder which is not indexed, then the explorer searches only in filename/type/properties. Then there is this option "File contents" iīm looking for. Then you can click this option and extend the search. But you canīt search "File contents" only, too.

Sorry, this is my 1st posting. Is there any option to mark this topic as "solved"?
