    Searching for text within a sticky note in Windows

    This post will tell you how you can search for text within a sticky note in Windows using Notezilla, a sticky notes app for Windows & Phones (Android, iOS, iPhone, iPad, Windows Phone etc).

    Sticky notes in Notezilla are not designed only for writing short notes. You can even use them as an alternative to Notepad. Notezilla allows you to work on sticky notes that are as wide as your display monitor. This way you can use sticky notes to also store large content such as reference material, web snippets, scripts, drafts etc. You don’t have to worry about saving your collected data to separate files.

    While you store large content into the notes, you may find it difficult to manually search for a particular word or keyword in the long note. Say, you want to replace or remove a particular word but can’t find it.

    This is where Notezilla will help you. You just have to press the “Ctrl+F” key from within a sticky note. A search box will automatically open wherein you can type the text you are looking for. The search results will be highlighted in the note. You can even right click inside a sticky note and select the “Find” option to do the same.
    The results will be filtered as and when you keep typing.

    If the word you are looking for is repeated several times in the note, just click on the right facing arrow and the next place where it appears is highlighted.

    Notezilla thus saves a lot of your time and efforts on searching for text.

    Similarly for ex: to exclude files smaller than 10 KB when copying files from “projects” folder to “backup” folder , you will apply the Command :
