This is a module to search the computer using Windows Search.

The module provides the cmdlet Invoke-WindowsSearch. This cmdlet makes a query to the Windows Search subsystem and gets results as PowerShell objects.

You can make a query in one of the following query languages or a combination of both.

(1) Advanced Query Syntax (AQS)

The Advanced Query Syntax is the query language that is used in the search box in Windows Explorer.

(2) Windows Search SQL

The Windows Search subsystem implements the OLE DB provider as its core query engine. By accessing it directly, you can make a search query by SQL. It offers wordy but cleaner syntax than AQS and can be written in a locale-independent manner.
