How do I set the FIND function to default to "Find ALL" instead of the field the cursor is in?

Currently, if I click on FIND function, it defaults the fields to whichever field the cursor happens to be sitting in. If in a DATE field, defaults FIND to Date. I see Community discussion back in 2009 saying no way to set default...but has this been improved/fixed?

    @DavidMoney the global search in the top right that @Scooterlam mentioned searches all accounts and all fields for what you put in.

    It is the same as Find All with "Any Field", "Contains", "the text you type"

    Thanks Chris & Scooterlam for feedback! Yes, I do use "search" but it only searches the account that is open in the register. But usually need to search ALL accounts as don't often recall which (credit card(s),bank, etc) was used to make a payment. Ah well. Just minor irritant.

    Have you tried first selecting the All Transactions at the top of the Account Bar?  Then you can search all accounts or sort all transactions by payee/description or date or amount, etc.
