    1909 way to go back to old search in explorer?


    The new search in 1909 file explorer does not have any options. Or are there any options setting that I dont know about? How do you even clear the search history? It doesnt even predict the files youre searching for by populating them in the window as you type. Can I even just disable this and go back to the old search? Please help.

    :)

  2. 1909 Update file explorer search issue.

    New 1909 update broke the file explorer search. Now after file explorer window has been open 10+ minutes the search option is grayed out. Text does not show in the bar and the only way to be able to type again is to task kill file explorer from taskmgr.
    I have tried to run the search and index troubleshooter but it says everything is working as intended. I have restarted the windows search service, and I have reset the windows search but this issue happens every day. Any suggestions?

    Problems with search in Windows 1909

    Hi,

    I have problems with advanced search in Windows 1909

    • In the formula I type, I don’t get blue text indicating that the formula is correct.
    • When I need dates in the formula, I don’t get a calendar to help me compose the formula.
    • When I use for instance the keyword “kind” I don’t get help to choose between the different kinds that are available.
    • ...
    This is a huge step backwards for me. Is there a way to fix it?

    Sincerely,

    Koen
