    Can I Delete This Stuff?


    In my Personal folder there's a folder called Searches. It contains 3 folders, one the result of a search I did recently on my C: drive. One of the others is called Everywhere and contains over 212,000 items. The other is called Indexed Locations and contains over 3,400 items. I'm assuming I can delete the first folder. What about the last 2; they seem like nonsense to me. Are they 'system' folders that would get re-created as needed? Should I leave the folders and delete the contents?

    Thanks for any help.

    (I'm using the current version of W10.)

    :)

    Shortcut key for "My Stuff" ?

    Using Windows 10, here's the steps I'm taking to search for files on the computer:

    • Click Start Menu (or tap the Windows key on the keyboard)
    • Start typing a search term
    • Click "My Stuff"
    • When it finds your file, click it to make the file open
    • If you want to open File Explorer and peruse similar files without opening files:
      • After clicking "My Stuff" (in Step 3) go to the bottom area under "Other places to look" and click "File Explorer"
      • File Explorer opens

      Question: I don't want to use the mouse to click "My Stuff" in step 3. Is there a shortcut key?

    Can I Delete This Stuff?

    can't delete my stuff

    I don't see improvement by removing useable and most wanted things! It's really annoying to scroll down a list of stuff by knowing that some apps 've been deleted long time ago.

    BRING BACK THE OPTION TO CLEAR DOWNLOADED STUFF HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!

    Shouldn't be that difficult..........!
