    Where is the "Search again in" function in File Explorer in Windows 11? It's there in Windows 10 when I want to run the same search again in a different folder. Thanks.

  3. Search Function on File Explorer is not Working

    Hi,

    In response to your questions:

    1. Did you make any changes to your PC prior to this issue?

    Not that I am aware of.

    2. Can you type in the search bar when you do not click on the Start button?

    The search button on the task bar works - it is the search box on file explorer that is not functioning

    Search for Missing files in File Explorer

    Hi,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.

    I understand that you are looking for a file named “Class” with the length of the file. However, currently File Explorer doesn’t have the option to search the files using the length.

    You can follow the steps mentioned below to search for a file in File Explorer using the Size, Kind of file and other options.

    1. Press and hold Windows key + E to open
      File Explorer.
    2. Click on This PC on the left pane.
    3. Press F3 key to open Search options.
    4. You can select the Size,
      Kind
      of file and other options and then, search for the file.

    Hope it helps.

    Please reply with the status of the issue, we will be glad to help you further.
