File Find Replace is a small-sized and portable piece of software that enables users to find and replace text in multiple files at the same time. It comprises standard and advanced options alike to please all user categories.

Portability advantages

Since there is no setup kit involved, you can drop the program files in any part of the hard disk and just click the EXE to run.

There is also the possibility to save File Find Replace to a USB flash disk or other removable storage unit, in order to run it on any PC with minimum effort, as long as it has .NET Framework installed.

What's more, the app does not add new entries to the Windows registry or Start menu, leaving the disk clean after removal.

Simple and intuitive interface

The GUI is friendly, allowing users to import files with the file browser, folder view or drag-and-drop method. All searchable formats are supported. Once you specify the text to locate along with the one to replace it with, you can start the automatic operation with the click of a button. Alternatively, you can just locate the text.

Scan results show the total occurrences and full path for each file. Furthermore, you can ask the tool to match the case, enable selection only, as well as to apply a file filter.

Edit app settings

As far as program configuration is concerned, you can set the main window startup position and default click action, ignore large files, hide tooltip descriptions on options, modify the default set of file extensions to ignore, as well as create a white list for file types.

The app is pretty light on system performance, running on low CPU and RAM. It did not cause us any issues in our tests, such as freezing, crashing or popping up errors.


All in all, File Find Replace offers a pretty straightforward solution to locating and replacing text across multiple files.
