How to get file that CONTAINS a word

Hello, I am Power Automate Desktop user. I need to get files to Variable that contains the special word. For example, I have several files in a folder and I want to get only files that contain "LOOP" word in the file name. How can I do that?

Thanks I went through this manual but I can't find any information about getting files a coording file name conditions. If I'd try to find element by xpath I'd have following expression

 

//*[Contains (text(), 'desired text')]

 

This way I could get div or element I need

 

 

 

Where are the files, in a file system or on a website?

The action above is for a file system which you can filter by using the "File filter" option

For a website you need to extract the list and filter it later:
