$ find / -name "*.pdf"
Change .pdf for .gif, .jpg, .mp3, etc and search any type of file
Find files with the word mysql
$ find . -name "*mysql*" -type f
Find in every type of file the words "Professor Coruja" inside the folder /home/coruja
find /home/coruja/ -name "*" | xargs grep "Professor Coruja"
