Search TXT Files Easily and Efficiently with Our Enterprise Search Software

 

The TXT format is a cornerstone of the digital world thanks to its small storage size and platform independence. With searchit , you can easily search all your TXT files on mail, file servers or in the cloud in seconds. Full-text search in one fell swoop – that’s efficiency without compromise.

TXT files are essential for digital communication and data management. These raw text documents are small in size and allow for a platform-independent exchange of information. TXTs serve as configuration files, notes, and storage for programming data, and are often used for automation and documentation. Their ease of use allows them to be created, edited and understood without the need for special software.

However, filtering out information in TXT files presents challenges: information is not visible at a glance, multiple files cannot be searched at the same time, and incorrect character encoding can make them unreadable. Find out here how searchit solves these problems:

What programs can I use to open and search TXT files?

TXT files can be opened and searched using various programs such as Notepad, Notepad++, TextEdit, gedit, Sublime Text, and Visual Studio Code. These editors offer features such as text search, line numbering, and syntax highlighting. Microsoft Word and LibreOffice Writer can also open and search TXT files.

How can I search multiple TXT files for keywords or strings?

There are several approaches to search multiple TXT files at once:

  1. Manual search: Open each file individually and use the search function in the text editor (“Ctrl + F” or “Cmd + F”) to search for keywords.
  2. Script-based search: Programming-savvy users can write Python or Bash scripts to automatically search for keywords in selected files.
  3. Enterprise search tools offer a more efficient solution: These tools can index large amounts of text files and make it possible to search for strings, keywords and even synonyms via a central user interface.

How can I make a TXT file with unreadable strings readable?

If a TXT file contains unreadable characters, it is usually due to incorrect character encoding or corruption of the file. Use text editors with UTF-8 or UTF-16 character encodings, or those that automatically detect and adjust the encoding, such as Notepad++ or TextEdit.

If the file still remains unreadable – and therefore unsearchable – check if there is a backup copy or if the file can be restored with a repair program.

How does searchit’s full-text search in TXT files work?

Targeted search in all TXT files from every data source in the company – that’s what searchit promises. The full-text search takes into account all text content, the file name and a large number of metadata. In addition to author, creation and modification date, this also applies to automatically extracted metadata, such as language. Additional functionalities, such as sorting results by relevance and searching for synonyms, contribute to the user-friendly search experience with searchit .

What character encodings of TXT files are supported in searchit ?

Enterprise Search supports a variety of character encodings for TXT files, including UTF-8, UTF-16, ISO-8859-1, and other popular encodings. This flexibility makes it possible to effectively process text data from different sources with different character encodings and make it searchable. Even without a suitable text editor, it is possible to search in text files of any encoding. This ensures that users with different languages and character sets can easily access their information in their TXT files at any time.

Can I also search TXT files on my mobile phone with searchit ?

Yes, with searchit you can easily browse TXT files from mobile devices. While many standard text editors on mobile devices may not have an advanced search function or may have difficulty processing large TXT files, searchit’s responsive web interface is designed for a smooth and user-friendly experience on mobile as well.
