Presumably you know roughly where the documents are on your server (they are not in Program Files, for example).

Open Windows Explorer to the top level folder, see the search bar top right, enter your search terms and search.

That works for me.

If I am trying to search for an exact string, I enclose it in quotes. But then you need the very exact string.

I have used this method and it works on my systems.
