Searching in Visual Studio, Powered by Code Search

    Am I the only person that has had a terrible experience in VSTS code search? It often comes up with zero results because it has decided to include (put checkmarks next to) only the projects that didn't include that search term in them. I have to go and manually click the checkbox next to the projects that did have matching results to see any code from the results. If that weren't bad enough I've found if I don't include a "*" wildcard after the search word/phrase it often won't find what I was looking for. As a result, I find myself not trusting the web search and frequently pulling down the code in VS and navigating through stuff there. :(

    I know others have had a much better experience and use that as their go-to. Not sure if it's something I have done or not done.
