How to find a file?

I was trying to find the location of the Struts ApplicationResources.properties in my IDEA 8 project.

However, no search I tried, including just "typing" the name at the root of the project found the file.

I tried the Search...Find in Path.

What's the trick to find "any file" in the project, regardless of file name?

Thanks in advance.

Control + Shift + N ?

Hi Maxim,

Thanks for your reply.

Well, on the Mac, it appears to be Control+"Command" + N.

The confusing thing is I don't see where the corresponding menu option is for this keyboard shortcut.

It's not with the other File Search options, right?

Where is this file find as a menu option.

Thanks.

It's in the "Go to" menu.
