Home / Search pdf files in folder (from within SumatraPDF)


Hi! I am coming from Foxit, to SumatraPDF 64bit on Windows 7.
I like the snappy feel of it and the no frills UI.

However, I am searching for a way to search within a folder of pdf documents for a word or a phrase. With Foxit I could do this with ctrl+shift+f. I have read that in Windows 10 you can install the ifilter, but I am unsure if Windows 7 has that option since when I installed it I did not see it.


See the installer images here.


Sorry I overlooked it. Thanks for the link.

I will post the search post with how ifilters work here as well:
