This is probably right under my nose and I can't find it.  Is there a way to use "Find" or antoehr method, to locate all pages tht use a specific style sheet?  

 

At some point in the past, a student worker converted our css to css.min pages, but then sometime after that, some changes were made to the css, and other changes were made to the css.min, and I think there are pages linked to one and other pages linked to the other. We'd like to get a handle on what .html or .php pages are linked to these different files. 

 

I see at the top of the .html page, the associated css. That's great if IO want to open every page and manually look.  I'd think there would be a way to use a search or find function for this.

You could use Find & Replace in Files to do a search for the link to each file within the code of your pages....

1. Open the Find & Replace in Files option (Ctrl + Shift + F)
2. Click the Basic tab on the upper left
3. Enter the name of your .css file in the Find... field
4. Make sure "Entire Current Local Site" is selected for the "In" dropdown
5. Leave the Replace field empty
6. Click the Find All button

Your Results > Search window will open automatically with a listing of every page that has that file name in its code.
