Office 2010 Filter Packs: Search within your documents

08 Oct

Microsoft released Office 2010 Filter Packs which lets you search for content such as text inside Microsoft Office documents.


It enables you to search for content in the following documents:

  • Legacy Office Filter (97-2003; .doc, .ppt, .xls)
  • Metro Office Filter (2007; .docx, .pptx, .xlsx)
  • Zip Filter
  • OneNote filter
  • Visio Filter
  • Publisher Filter
  • Open Document Format Filter

Now if you search some keywords which is not in the title of your document, you will see how good it is. Note the title of highlighted document does not directly contain the key word “hft”, while the word “hft” appears inside the document. Engjoy!

Download the packs here:

Windows 7 32-bit (x86): FilterPack32bit.exe
Windows 7 64-bit (x64): FilterPack64bit.exe
