The Powershell version of the "grep" command?

I needed to find text inside files in a folder and subfolders, and make a list of them where every file only is listed once. This is what I came up with.

First we get all .txt-files on the C-drive, -File specify what files, -Recurse makes it search all subfolders, -Force includes hidden files and -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue makes it ignore folders it cannot read inside.
Get-ChildItem C:\ -File *.txt -Recurse -Force -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue

Now we want to search inside these files, for this we use Select-String:
Select-String -Pattern "Microsoft" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
This will list the files once for each occurrence of "Microsoft" inside the files, we don't are about the text, all we want is the file name and path (-ExpandProperty will force powershell to give us the full path even if it is very long, If you only use -Property it may cut of the result):
Select-Object -ExpandProperty Path

We only want to see each file once:

And we want to use only the full path of the files:
Select-Object -ExpandProperty Name

If we put everything together it become:
Get-ChildItem C:\ -Recurse -File *.txt -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Select-String -Pattern "Microsoft" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Path | Group-Object | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Name

You can replace the search text and path with variables:
Get-ChildItem $SearchPath -Recurse -File $SearchFiles -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Select-String -Pattern "$SearchText" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Path | Group-Object | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Name

If I want to do this the old way this is what the script would look like:
FOR /F "delims=" %%A IN ('DIR /S /B "C:\*.txt"') DO (
   FINDSTR /M /I "Microsoft" "%%A"

I wanted to see if powershell is faster than an oldschool cmd script and I used the:
Measure-Command { put the command in here }

It took 11.95 seconds with Powershell and 32.52 seconds for CMD!

Please note that I have run the commands several time to make sure Windows have had time to cache the information. I started with Powershell and then CMD.

Can it be done with less pipes? I don't know, you tell me how!

To find files where "Microsoft" exists more than once (you can change "1" to whatever):
Get-ChildItem C:\ -Force -Recurse -File *.txt -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Select-String -Pattern "Microsoft" -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Path | Group-Object | Where-Object {$_.count -gt 1} | Select-Object -ExpandProperty Name

If we want to use this command in our daily work it would be nice to make a Powershell Module.
It could looks something like this:

#=== FILE Get-FilesFindText.psm1 BEGINS ===
Function Get-FilesFindText {
    Search for files that includes specified text
    Windows Powershell version of Grep
    It does what you can do with:
    FOR /F "delims=" %%A IN ('DIR /S /B "C:\*.txt"') DO ( 
   FINDSTR /M /I "Microsoft" "%%A"
    But in about 1/3 of the time!

    Copy the file Get-FilesFindText.psd1 & Get-FilesFindText.psm1 into a new folder called Get-FilesFindText
    Copy the new folder into "C:\Program Files\WindowsPowerShell\Modules"
    or another fodler in your $ENV:PSModulePath and run: Import-Module Get-FilesFindText
    Verify by running "Get-Modules". Get-FilesFindText Should be listed.
    File name: Get-FilesFindText
