How do I search my own source code projects?

More often I am facing a situation searching for a code snippet with the knowledge I have done similar before but for sure don’t recall when or what the VS project name was that I used.


I am looking for a way to perform a full text search across all projects stored in my user folder (C:\Users\Gregor\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects). In earlier days the companion search was useful since it allowed to search for particular keywords within documents. I am looking for something similar but optimally something showing the document with the search-keyword marked and the ability to move to the next or previous occurrence.


Does anybody use / knows something that I could use out of the box?
