I just wish to search for patterns on filenames stored across a project folder hierarchy.

I have managed to search docx files using:

*integration*.docx

but how do I also search PDFs and PPTX with that same pattern?

Best answer

To search for a pattern amongst a number of different file types use the ':' (colon) character after the file types, e.g.

*.pdf;*.docx;*.pptx:integration

This also works with just a single file type, the equivalent to your expression would be:

*.docx:integration
