Anybody knows if it's possible to search for a word in a bunch of html files at once?

Old EP message files under the name "deleted"

The obvious way would be to try and stitch them together first. How'd you get old EP message files of all things?
@BlueVeins In EP last days they allowed us to download our data to keep them with us. The stories conversations questions and I think confessions which was an old feature. You can also upload your old stories here on SW but I didn't opt for that. PotatoGaga did that that's why her first post should show 2011 I think 🤔 I will check.

@PiecingBabyFaceTogether God I wish I had saved my old chats
If you open them all in Notepad++, you can search in all open files.
@NerdyPotato I just found what I wanted manually but thanks 😊 turns out the username I was looking for was changed by the person I remembered that once I saw the later username.
