    Microsoft to improve search experience in Windows 10’s File Explorer


    Search functionality in File Explorer is not as good as Windows Search, but the upcoming update of Windows 10 could make the search experience better in File Explorer. In latest preview builds of Windows 10 20H1 update, Microsoft has updated search in File Explorer with a new change.

    Microsoft says users have been asking for increased consistency across the platform and as well as ability to find files more easily. Windows 10 20H1 update introduces a new File Explorer search experience powered by Windows Search. After this change, you’ll be also able to find your OneDrive content with the traditional search results.

    The update adds a new dropdown result that shows up when you search for files in Explorer. This new experience is powered by Windows Search and it aims to populate your files quickly. You can open any of these results directly by clicking the entry in the new suggestions box.

    You can right-click the entry to find the file location and there is still also a way to dig deeper into File Explorer search results. You have to press enter to access the traditional search results page with tons of entries.

    The dropdown list also comes with search history features. This means when you click the entry in the suggested box and open the search box in File Explorer again, you’ll see the dropdown list with the previously accessed items.

    It is also worth noting that Microsoft has made the File Explorer search box wider by default so the suggestions dropdown has room to render quick results. You can always customize the size of the search box by moving your mouse to the starting border of the search box.

    All these changes for File Explorer will ship with Windows 10 20H1 update.

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Microsoft to improve search experience in Windows 10’s File Explorer wie1.png


    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).

    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

    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.
