In the advanced search page, when searching for code there is no way to exclude archived projects.
For example when looking within an organization’s repositories for projects that use a specific Gem (package) version, in e.g. _Gemfile _or Gemfile.lock the search results include all the instance of that gem in archived projects as well making it cumbersome to identify the important ones.
Another alternative would be to display which projects are archived in the search results.
Here is an example from Github’s organization:
