FastFind is a Visual Studio extension which provides an instant find-in-files search which is so fast that it updates as you type. It also allows you to quickly jump to any file in your solution, all without reaching for the mouse. FastFind is very fast, and can handle huge projects with millions of lines of code and thousands of files with ease.

Absurdly fast plugin for finding files and text. I work with a project so large (29k files) that most apps (including visual studio itself) have serious trouble with it, but FastFind is flawless.

FastFind Features

  • FastFind indexes all of the files in your solution which allows it to find any matches to your query quickly and efficiently. FastFind can find partial matches, wildcard matches, word matches, and supports full regular expressions.
  • Once you start using FastFind to its full potential you'll wonder how you ever programmed without it. If you can remember a line of code you can jump to it instantly. FastFind can actually take over many functions of a traditional code parser plugin...
