With the Find In Files window showing, change the Look In combo box to anything except Current Document or All Open Documents. This enables the Look At These File Types option, allowing you to select what file types to search for.

And for a more advanced searching experience, there’s a “…” button next to the Look In combo box.

Clicking this button pops up the Choose Search Folders window. Here you can create a set of folders to search in.

And now you can find your custom folder set as a Look In option.

Happy Programming! =)
