    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    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date.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.

    Hi Stanislav,

    To better understand the query, please answer the following questions:

    1. When you go to settings > Accounts, does all the three pictures appear as the screenshot above?

    2. Are those pictures previously used account pictures?

    I suggest you to try deleting the old account pictures by following the steps below and check again.

    1. Press Windows key + R to open the run command.

    2. Copy and paste the following command and press enter:


    3. If the old account pictures are listed, delete it and restart the computer
