Hello, For Windows Explorer, can I search just for directories only? Example: When I'm searching for a file and use this - File: .git, it shows the files. But when I try to search for directories, it does nothing. Am I missing something here?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Just type into the search box the directory/folder you are looking for and it should find it. Just remember there is no file extension. It may vary a bit depending on what OS you are on. IF you want to see all the directories you might be better off using FILE EXPLORER and expand everything on the drive. I don’t believer in Windows explorer there is a wildcard function for directories/folders.
