What does it mean when you dream about finding something?

Finding an object in a dream often symbolizes discovering something in our lives—finding our sense of self-identity; finding our place. The dream might also be drawing on the meaning of common idioms, such as to “find out,” “find one’s bearings,” or “fault finding.”

Find

(1) To search for text within the current document or Web page. Control-F in Windows and Command-F in the Mac open a search box for entering text. Pressing Enter starts the search and each subsequent press continues the search.

(2) (Find) An external DOS/Windows command that provides a "case sensitive" search for text in a file. Find is also used to locate files based on the text within the file name (see filters and pipes). Grep is the Mac/Unix/Linux counterpart to Find; however, there are third-party grep utilities for Windows as well (see grep).

The following example locates all the batch files in the current folder that contain the text XCOPY:
find "xcopy" *.bat
