I may start a 'find in files' search, which will take a while, and then I'll be doing some other stuff in the editor window in the meanwhile, and all the sudden the focus shifts to the Find Window when the search completes. Any way to stop VS doing that? I didn't find any options in the tools-> options menu, maybe someone who is equally crossed with this found a way to stop this frankly pointless behaviour.

- Disassemble it to find the offending bytecode.
- Terminate with extreme prejudice.
- Weep because you must now reinstall.
There are ten kinds of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.

It's very odd that your searches take any time at all. Do you have regular expression matching enabled? Even on my 2500 file project, it takes less than a second to do a full project text search because the recently used files are cached in memory by the operating system.

As for searches being quick: at least when using C#, searches in VS appear to be CPU-bound instead of IO-bound. Crazy! A findstr from the cmd line will search all the files in an instant, but VS's find will take several seconds.
