    OneDrive - Web use in Edge Browser need to search results by Date


    I am not new to the world of MS and its wonderful software. In fact, I changed completely over to OneDrive for all of my computing storage needs 5 years ago. Liberating to say the least....but, as I am a tad limited on my main PC (a Surface Pro v3) I choose to only sync certain folders into the integrated File Explorer folder tress associated with my OneDrive account.

    As that is the case and how I do things (based on my storage limitations), I am really confused regarding the in-ability to "sort by
    date" for search results in the scenario presented above. For example, I will search for all *.docx files in OneDrive using the webapp OneDrive main page in my Edge browser. There are many hundreds/thousands of files that come
    to populate. All are in some seemingly random order.

    And, I have searched high and low for settings changes that I may be able to make...to no avail. This is very frustrating and I am aghast that this sort feature wouldn't be able to be found somewhere...

    Does anyone have an idea as to how to search for specific file types and then be able to sort them by date? Or, even by name??

    Any help is tremendously appreciated.



    :)

    Taskbar web search results

    While it has nothing really to do with the taskbar, it just your web searches to return screen reader friendly results

    From the Edge Webpage:

    "Search for anything on the web or your device using the search box on the Windows taskbar. If you use a screen reader, follow these steps to make the web search results open in Internet Explorer instead of Microsoft Edge"

  3. Cortana is not opening Web search results in browser.

    I had installed "EdgeDeflector" on my windows 10 pc, a software that forces Cortana to use google chrome/firefox instead of Microsoft edge. Now, after uninstalling the "EdgeDeflector" cortana is not opening web search
    results in any browser. Even though edge is now set as my default browser, It just shows Bing results in that small slide out panel of cortana. How do I make Cortana use edge browser again? (without "EdgeDeflector". I don't want it on my computer)

    Turn Off Web Search Results When Searching My Computer

    Hi,

    If you are pertaining to the Cortana search web results, you can disable it and improve local search results. Follow the steps below to disable web results:

    • Click the search bar.
    • Select the Notebook icon on the left pane of the search bar.
    • From the options, select Settings. (Note: On the later versions of Windows, the Settings button might be outside the Notebook icon.)
    • On the Settings, toggle the Cortana gives me suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts and more option to
      Off.
    • On the lower part, turn off the Search online and included web results option as well.

    See the image as reference to the above steps:

    After doing the steps, try using search again and see if the web results will now disappear.
