I guess the answer to your problem is just putting a
star in the extension list "*" (without "")

If you select "types", a checkbox appears allowing you to select "Scan all files"; I guess that's what you want? :)

Any why do you select "name extension"?
When you select "type" (content), you can check the "all files" checkbox.
The "name extension" setting is there to restrict the number of opened files (thus make the scanning faster); but if you want to scan all of them anyway, it doesn't matter that each one is opened.
