    below is what I need to see when I look at a folder. :


    Geting a search item to open so the > is next to my folder. [​IMG]

    ON some systems when I do a search I can find a folder however I have to jump through many hoops to get it to open up with the > next to it


    Geting a search item to open so the > is next to my folder. [​IMG]

    Is there a registry hack that will force windows to always expose the > when I find a folder in search ?
    When I FIND a folder I need to right click on the folder and have it say -Show FOlder in expaned view.

    :)

  2. "Recent Items" list vs Opening a folder for Recent Items


    Geting a search item to open so the > is next to my folder. :) Hello all... I am not understanding how MS elected removed the list of recent files and replaced it with opening a folder to see the recent files. That is now a 2 step process because you have to close the folder. I used the "recent items" a lot and I miss it - I'm sure others do ass well.
    The solutions offered here only are partial, they only add the link to the start menu / jump lists, but those still open an actual folder which then has to be closed. If you open multiple files, then you have to close multiple folders. Odd...
    I'm not a programmer - but I'm thinking (hoping!) that someone around here may be knowledgeable enough to find a way to return the actual "Recent Items" list, without opening a folder.
    I'm thinking I may not be alone on this one...
    Thank you!!

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.


    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

    Recovering a deleted email from the deleted items folder or Recycle Bin

    Thank you for the suggestion. The only message I find at the bottom of the message list in the deleted items folder is "To find older messages, use Search". My search did not work.

    Thanks.
