Opening SEARCH-MS files

Did your computer fail to open a SEARCH-MS file? We explain what SEARCH-MS files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your SEARCH-MS files.

What is a SEARCH-MS file?

The .search-ms file extension is most commonly associated with the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. These files contain Microsoft Windows index search data files. Files with the .search-ms extension are a part of an index maintained by the operating system that allows a user to search for files on PCs and computer networks. The .search-ms files are text files saved in XML format.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
