All of our developers have recently been dealing with a lot of shelving and unshelving in Team Foundation Server to share code. When unshelving shelvesets, we get prompted to fill in an Owner name text box.  If you don't know the owners user name, an easy way to search through shelvesets is by entering an asterisk in the Owner name text box and then pressing the find button.  This wildcard will bring up all the shelvesets available for you to unshelve. It's a handy little trick when you need to broaden your search.

I thought this was a pretty common known trick among TFS users but I've found more and more people didn't even know this existed, so I figured I'd throw a blog up about it.  Hope that helps.
