How to use 'File/directory pattern' in the Search area?

Can someone please explain what this does and how to use it?

This cropped up before, but I can’t find the thread. I made a note for myself:

File/Directory Patterns:
admin/** (search in admin folder + subfolders)
admin/somefolder/* (search in specIfied folder only)
dmxConnect/api/admin/**
name*.php/ (search within files starting with ‘name’)
