        STRING          Broad search all over the types
        !STRING                 Key search all over the types

To restrict the search to a certain type of information:

To obtain detail or related information:

        *STRING                 Expand the output even when multiple matches

        STRING...       Partial search starting with STRING
        ...STRING       Partial search ending with STRING

if STRING contains an '@', search only E-Mail fields:
