(Archived) How do I search for files

Recommended Posts

It would be nice to have a PDF link, but until it is added, you will need to search using:

  • resource:application/pdf

Here are some others that I believe work correctly:
  • Doc files: resource:application/msword (does not find .docx files)
    Excel files: resource:application/vnd.ms-excel
    Word files: resource:application/msword
    Zip files: resource:application/x-zip-compressed

You can search by filename, but it only works for the beginning of the name, e.g.,

  • filename:xyz*
    will find filenames that start with "xyz".

I stored these sort of tips in Evernote for handy reference.

Credit goes to Jefito and Crane for these tips.
