Searching PDFs and DOCs using Google Search

Generally, we use Google search in order to find any information we need. Google is widely used by many of us to find information relevant for us. Sometimes, we may need to find PDF (Portable Document Format) or DOC files and even the PPT (Powerpoint Presentations). This can be easily done using google search trick.

In order to find any type of file in google, we can use special google keyword filetype to specify the type of file we want to search. Put the colon : after the filetype and specify the type of file you want. For example, if you are searching for PDF or DOCs, do the following:



For example, you are searching for the PDFs related to nepali morphological analyzer, you'll do:

nepali morphological analyzer filetype:pdf

You can follow the same process for any other filetypes. Have fun with this google trick. :)
