Everything does not search file contents, only filenames.

go to a command prompt in windows and enter FIND /?

Maybe someday SE will have an extension to build a list of files and can be used with FIND to do that text search.

Searching inside files is relatively slow and SE is a cheetah among the animals of windows....
