Appearance And Personalization > FOLDER OPTIONS > then show hidden files and folders, then maybe try the search again...
I don't know anything about the Gimp rc folders or maybe could help more....

I am always frightened that you will break something ;)

An alternative that does not involve editing/copying/pasting....

have a look at this and give it a try

Ah, after watching your video I get it, I think, gimp doesn't come with the contextrc file installed, it is created when you save some setting/option. I guess I've never saved anything that would cause it to be created

Thanks for the video rich2005

Tried the Edit>Preferences>save - no joy.
I copied from Notepad the content of the contextrc -
# GIMP user context

(tool "gimp-move-tool")
(paint-info "gimp-paintbrush")
(brush "Oils 01")
(dynamics "Dynamics Off")
(pattern "Blue Grid")
(gradient "FG to BG (RGB)")
(palette "Default")
(font "Titania")

# end of user context
