It would be great if you could search at "Open File in Solution" (ALT+SHIFT+O) with wildcards (* and ?), e.g.
-> "myK*.cpp" would contain "myclass.cpp
-> "my*cp" would also contain "myclass.cpp

This would often help a lot!

Yes, we code!

You can already do this, but it is done slightly differently.

You use space to separate your search terms, and then the Open File dialog, along with several other VA search fields, search for any entry containing all of the search terms, in any order.

In this case you use the search myK .cpp and VA will search for any entry with both of these.

It gets more interesting, and helpful, when you learn that you can exclude matches with a minus sign. So here you can add -auto which would filter out "myAutoClass.cpp"

Also dot is used to mark the start or end of a word, so you can make sure you are not simply searching for a term in the middle of a file name.
