    Where is the setting that makes the search bar in the insert file dialog box shrink when you click on it?


    To produce the problem, open Outlook [2016 on Win 10 1909] and create a new email. Now Attach File -> Browse this PC. The insert file dialog box opens. Everything looks normal, but if you click in the search area, the search area and history only shrinks. It's not just the text, but the bar itself. See screenshot below. Notice how the search is smaller than the rest of the text?


    I've checked Explorer and the search bar there doesn't shrink. I then tried insert picture in both Excel and Word and got the same shrinking. I tried the open dialog in Acrobat and that didn't shrink, so as far as I can tell, it seems limited to either Office or the insert file dialog, or both.


    A search turned up the compact layout in Outlook View -> View Settings -> Other Settings, but turning that on and off didn't change the problem. Hoping someone here has seen this before.

    • Click/tap inside the Search box, then select (highlight) the search suggestion (ex:
      ttt) that you want to delete, and press the Delete key.

  4. insert file dialog search bar shrinks

    Removed USB files suggestions showing up in search bar and in search this pc in windows explorer

    I had inserted a USB in my laptop and then removed it but when I searched the files in the search bar and in search this PC in windows explorer, all of the files and suggestions from the USB show up. What do I do to remove them?

    "show recently opened items in jump lists on start or taskbar and in file explorer quick access" is already disabled. I have tried removing and adding c and drive d drive from the indexing options. I also tried clearing the device search history but nothing
    seems to work.
