search npm modules for symbols

This is probably a question any VS wizard knows, but I don't.

Is there way to get SEARCH (Edit Find & Replace, or NAVIGATE TO) to search the local installed NPM packages. Right now, when I need to explore the implementation of something in a installed NPM package, I have to use the 3rd party tool PowerGrep to find it.

We don't support navigate to, so you'll have to use Find in Files (that's CTRL-SHIFT-F for me).

Find in Files has the option of looking in 'Current Project', 'Entire Solution' or any folder(s) that you type in. Note that 'Current Project' or 'Entire Solution' options only look at items that are part of the project, and node_modules isn't part of the project (by default). So you'll want to enter a folder path manually (it searches recursively).
