In previous versions of Windows, I was able to use the native Windows Explorer file search with a wildcard () to locate all files of a certain type.

However, now that I am using Windows 10, I am unable to do this. I am trying to find SVG files in a project directory and have typed “.svg” into the Explorer search field and have the “All subfolders” option enabled.

The search results show “No items match your search,” but I am able to locate some SVG files by manually searching through the subdirectories.

I am not sure if this feature has been removed or if there is a way to enable it, but it used to be very intuitive.
