How can we improve Azure DevOps?

Add option for case sensitive code search

In our codebase with have plenty of tokens that don't qualify as either of the existing categories but are named all upper case. Unfortunately, some of the names are generic enough and generate a lot of hits in addition to the tokens needed. It also would help with "standard" code searches as consistent casing is often used to distinguish classes from functions from local variables (but picking the corresponding category to search in is tedious).

    " c/c++/c# are case-sensitive languages, and search can be a headache if you're searching for macros versus camelCase variables versus whatever other naming style.  This is especially a problem where the search string contains common words or worse, words that are keywords in one casing or another.  Please enable case sensitivity in search.  
    It would be nice to be able to toggle this at a query level, and make it sticky by user, but not required." Adding on behalf of a user (Sandeep Chadda)
