Hello There,

One tried and tested method is that if you can connect your SharePoint list or library to the Outlook Application you can search for documents within the library,

Please see the MS Technet for more details:

Correction to the last post:
That url/site did not quite tell us how to connect Outlook
(must it be 2010 version) to Sharepoint list/library, can
elaborate on this?

Why not use the out of the box search functionality within SharePoint?

Can briefly share where I can locate this built-in Sharepoint
search functionality (step by step pls) as I'm newbie?

Can it search for text within Word, Excel just like what
Windows Explorer could do?
