How to search for files in folders with keywords in the middle ?

Post by gwygdd » Sat Aug 24, 2019 5:48 am

For example, there are some folers in my computer: 12345, 23456, 34567, 56789, 1357 each contains files such abcd.exe, bcde. txt, cdef.doc

How could I search for files whose name contains "bc" in folers whose name contains "345" ? here "345" may not be at the beginning or end of the folder name.

Many thanks in advance.

Code: Select all

folder:345 child:bc
Edit: On second thought, if it looks like 23456\abcde.exe then

Code: Select all

*345*\*bc*
