Find Files In Path

How can I find all xml files in a directory?
If I bring up Ctrl-Shift-F and use file mask *.xml the Find button is not activated until I put some text in.
I tried putting in .* as a regular expression but it doesn't search and says "Regular expression matched empty string"
If I use Ctrl-Shift-N it isn't limited to my specified directory, it is limited to how many it can show and doesn't stay on screen.

Is there any way to just list all files of a certain type?

Hello opticyclic,

Enter "directoryName\*.xml" in Ctrl-Shift-N. Then you can multi-select the
results and open them in the editor.
