In voidtools Search Everything, which is a thousand times faster and better than Windows Search, you search for all folders containing the string system as

*system* type:folder

Downloads - voidtools

If you insist on using windows search I believe the syntax is the same. But I don't know for sure because windows search is disabled on my system. Someone else will need to chime in.
