Searching for work items with queries inside Visual Studio sometimes  becomes a pain and using this add- in you can filter the Work Items using  one little search box in the IDE.  It allows you to enter some text in, hit the enter key, and it would bring out  the list of results of work items that matches with the text entered.

The default search fields are Title, History, and Description. If you want to modify which work item fields are searchable, type in "--template" (no quotes) into the search box and hit enter. This will open the search template. Just add another "Or" statement, pick the field name, select an operator, type "[search]" (no quotes) in the value field, and hit ctrl + s to save. The next time you run a search it will use the modified search template.
