When I do ctrl + shit + r to search for my files, I'll only be able to search a file starting from their first letters and so on. So if I get a file's name wrong, it won't show up in the search results. How can I change it so I can have the search results with contained words rather than specific words starting from the first letter?


I type in "Command"

It'll show me all the files with the starting word "Command" and so on.

Now let's say one of the files is called "CommandDeveloper"

if I try to search "Developer"

It will NOT show "CommandDeveloper" rather, it will show any file
name with the beginning word "Developer" and so on after that.

I want to change that, so when I search "Developer" it will find ALL files with the word containing "Developer" just like how a search system is supposed to work.

The dialog shows right at the top that * and ? can be used for "patterns". So *Developer should to the trick. I often use this to find *.ecore or *.setup.
