    File explorer not returning the same results on different computer


    Hi,

    maybe somebody will be able to point me in the right direction.

    I have the following files in a folder:
    123abcdef.txt
    456abcdef.txt
    789abcdef.txt
    abcdef.txt

    On my own computer, I can open this folder in the file explorer and enter abc in the search box. All those files will be found.
    On some other laptop, entering abc will only return the file abcdef.txt. To have all the files, we have to enter *abc

    I suspect it's a config somewhere but I can't find it.

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    :)

    Windows 7 File Sharing between computers, PROBLEMS!!

    Just do a file transfer in explorer from one computer to the other and see what speed you get. I would suggest avoiding homegroup and using a proper network setup instead.

    File Explorer resetting to Details after Anniversary Update

    Hi,

    Let's get this sorted out. We suggest you try these troubleshooting steps:

    • Start the Windows in clean boot. To do this, follow the steps
      here
      .
    • Once in clean boot environment, change the settings again to set it back to
      List
      . Normally, changing the view style in the bottom right of the window and exiting File Explorer should do the trick. The next time you open File Explorer, it should default to the last view style selected.
    • If the issue persist, let's run SFC scan to look for corrupted files. Here's
      how
      .
    • Restart the computer normally.

    Share with us the results.

    Thanks.

    File Explorer Search Not Working


    I am trying to search in File Explorer (Windows Explorer, My Computer) and it will not find anything. I can copy text from a name in the list and paste it in the search box and it still finds nothing. I have looked at the suggestions that have been posted and nothing I find that is relative to this works. Anyone have any suggestions? I am running Win 10 Pro on an I3 coustom desktop computer.
