I type this in the property box under filter

use empty string to watch for all files

You could also create
several FileSystemWatchers (array) and hook them up with the same event,
like this:

TextFileWatcher.Created += new FileSystemEventHandler(Watchers_Created);
ExeFileWatcher.Created += new FileSystemEventHandler(Watchers_Created);
