    Slow Folder Renaming

    In windows 10 you only have to type "Indexing options" into Cortana- next to the start. and select the first option she gives you, from there if you select "modify" you can exclude certain folders, so search will still work on everything else and you
    can rename files in your given location without that annoying freezing, has worked a treat with me when reorganising my folders. hope that helps.

    Using the File Explorer, I want to search for all files modified on a certain date in the past. The only options I see things like "yesterday, last week, last year, etc." I want to be able to search for all files modified on a certain date (ex. July
    12, 2015). How can I do this?
