You can search for any type of files using this on Google (I believe that it shows you the most recent shared files)...

site:drive.google.com <file that you are trying to search>

i.e. If you type site:drive.google.com file type or file name a bunch of links will pop up. Google Search

*It might not be the files you are trying to look for, but it does work!!!*
It also works for anything else like pdf, docs, pictures or you can just type the file name.

Quality advice. This is known as Google Search Operators and you can see a full list here: https://ahrefs.com/blog/google-advanced-search-operators/

Shooooould work for other search engines as well, not just google

This is a good specific-use case that I hadn't really thought about. Guess the fact my google drive is indexed in google if I have it set to public is something I probably should have realized...at least, I hope it has to be set to public/shared/etc :P
