This might be easily answered, but I can't seem to find any settings that would allow me to specify a specific file type to search. File Locator Pro.

Not interested in searching my entire computer for a file with text that I know is a specific file type. I have thousands of doc, dox, ppt, .pdf, csv, html, zip, .rar, .db, .txt, .json, .epub, eml files and it helps to be able to specify the file type or extension when searching.

Thanks!

Use the file name field to specify your file type, e.g.

File name: *.doc;*.pdf;*.txt
