    I know MS broke the search feature in Windows Explorer, but I upgraded anyway, thought I could live with it.

    Click Turn on index and nothing happens.

    Next time I search it starts all over again, am I doing something wrong?

    Second part of this question, does the WE search function improve with Version 20H2?

    :)
