    How to revert file explorer search function prior to Windows 10 feature update version 1909


    I would like to revert my file explorer search function to the one prior to feature update version 1909.


    The new "updated" search function for Windows file explorer is slow, clunky, and doesn't give to option to clear one's search history.


    I had previously uninstalled the version 1909 update from Windows settings but the search function remains the same.


    Please advise on how to revert the file explorer search function to what it was prior to this "update".

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    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?
