In Windows 8, at least, if you're searching from File Explorer, you don't even need to type the asterisk. Just navigate to the folder you want to search through and type .exe into the search bar. It will return results for everything with .exe in its name.


Will it find .exe files though?

I bet it doesn't.

Bonus points if it actually does with file extensions turned off.


Yes and yes.
