I am doing some search by "Find" for the "Entire Solution" but it is not searching all files in the solution... Why?
I invoke the search by CNTRL-F and make sure the Entire Solution is selected. Upper/lower off, not whole word.... But only some files are searched....
It used to be much easier in earlier version of VS.

    Ctrl+F is find in current file by default I believe. If you use Ctrl+Shift+F then that is find in files. Then ensure you have selected the Entire Solution, that you don't have any file filters applied and try again. A screenshot would be helpful so we can see what you're seeing.

    Search has been evolving in VS 2022 so it would be useful to know what version of VS 2022 you're currently running as well.
