Can't find Find Tool Window

I'm going a little crazy trying to locate the Find Tool window. The WebStorm docs say look in View -> Tool Windows -> Find. It's not there. Hitting option-3 should bring it up, per these docs.

Perhaps my config is hosed?

Can anyone tell me how to get Find back?

Hi Michael,

Find toolwindow displays search results and become visible/accessible when search returns at least one match. Until there it's hidden/inaccessible (what's the point of such tool window if it is empty).

Use Find in Path ("Edit | Find | Find in Path") and similar actions (Replace in path; Find Usages etc) to reach such toolwindow.
