Default finding a word in multiple word files


Greetings,
I am looking for a help on how to find a word in multiple documents. Finding a word in one document is easy: (ctrl - Find) and tipping the word. Now I want to find a word in many files which are separate.
Could you please help?
Thank you

Having found them, then what? Did you try using Windows Explorer's search function?

It's in the top-right area of the Windows Explorer dialogue, next to the address bar.
