    Can't perform advanced search in Windows 1909 file Explore


    Hi,
    I installed yesterday Windows 1909. Now I want to do a simple search operation in File Explorer. I want to find the documents I changed between November 13 and November 21.
    So I type in the search box the formula datemodified:11/13/2019 .. 11/21/2019 kind:=document
    In Windows 1903 that’s piece of cake. You get plenty of assistance when you type it in the search box. In 1909 I don’t find a user friendly way to get the formula.

    Note: They are in different folders, so I can't use a filter, only a search operation.

    Does anybody know a solution?

    Thanks a lot,
    Koen

    :)

  3. 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?

    1909 Update file explorer search issue.

    I changed windows services to automatic no delay start. and on recovery tab restart after 5 minutes and no issues on any of my computers

    for 5 hours so far. Before that it would suspend search after 5 minutes or so and i would have to restart explorer big pain as it closes all open windows.
