For example I have 100 files that end with "GoldStriped", but they all starts with different strings. I would like to search for the files that starts with the word "Base" and end with "GoldStriped" and filter out all the other ones.

Using the default expression type (ie DOS) this should work:

File name: Base*GoldStriped

If you're using Boolean expressions on the file name then:

File name: Base AND GoldStriped

Don't put the 'File name:' bit, that's just to show you which field the data is entered.
The Base*GoldStriped worked! Thank you! One more question, if i want to search for a string that contains these words anywhere in the file name, how do I format it? For example i have files named like these:
Shaft-Starbuzz-Simple-Blue
Hookah-KM-Simple-Red
Bowl-KM-Simple-Green
Hookah-Mya-Bambino-Simple-Orange
I would like to see results of the files that contain the words Hookah and Simple. Do I search for Hookah*Simple?
Yes, but if the order of the words isn't important use:
Hookah:Simple
you've elevated my search capabilities by 1000 miles, thank you. i work with a lot of files (over 30k photos) and this helps me tremendously
