  1. File Explorer Search: Results not opening


    When I use File Explorer Search in my user folders, the results appear to have lost their association and do not open when I click them.

    Before search:

    File Explorer Search: Results not opening [​IMG]


    After search for "Get"

    File Explorer Search: Results not opening [​IMG]


    Note the icons have gone, the folder is not listed. Clicking the file does zilch.

    :)
