Finding missing controls in project in VS 2010

Posted 04 April 2014 - 08:50 AM

I was currently assigned replacing a picture on a form with a different one that was more up-to-date. Only problem is that all the controls were left on there and now I can't find three of the controls to put them back in their proper place. I can't find them just by clicking around the form cause I haven't seen anything. Bad part about it is that the picture has a white background making it hard to see the controls. I managed to find all but three. I was wondering if there was a way to search for that control in a designer interface to find that control. Is there a way I can type a search (by name of control) in some sort of search box to get the controls I'm looking for? Thank you in advance! :)

I use the 'document outline' view.

In the designer:
view -> other window -> document outline.

- or -
cntrl+alt+t
