Fix Windows Full Text search

I’ve recently noticed that using the Windows full text search may not always turn up the expected results. Apparently, Windows requires a program to install a search filter for a given file type. There is some plain text filter available by default, but it’s only registered for some endings. Source code files, e.g. Groovy files, will not be included, even though they contain nothing but plain ASCII text. Anyways, there’s a fix available, but it’s nowhere near intuitive…
