This was useful in 3.x, one could put a fragment of an e-mail address, screen name, real name, etc. in the ACP > Members search box and get results where the string was found in e-mail, screen name, or real name.
Sometimes I get mail from members who don't include their screen names, and I can find them by e-mail address. Or, I used it when I'm look for a duplicated registration.
Why was this changed to a less usable restricted search for Display Name only, with confusing and more laborious options for Advanced Search?
Providing fuzzy search with Advanced Search for more granular multi-parameter search would have retained existing usability.
You can do this in 4. Just use the AdminCP search. I search by fragments all the time.
Wouldn't it be logical to the functionality in ACP Member search as well?
