  1. Search only shows Web Results


    When I search for something in the search bar, now I am only getting web results. I am not getting computer related items. For example, if I search for printers, I only get web results about printers. I am not getting anything about the printers I have installed on this computer. This is a recent development. Not sure what happened and no idea how to fix this. I guess I will add this to the list!

    Open for any ideas. Thanks.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 search not showing 'Settings' results. Help!!!

    Windows 10 search not showing Settings results. It only shows Web and
    App results. How can I enable Settings results in Search??

    For example, when I try to search Internet Options in the search bar, it doesn't show the results of settings. It only shows web results. How can I change this thing.

  5. I try clicking on My Stuff and then on File Explorer and the entire search goes away and I have to start the process over again. WTH??!! If I click on Settings, Search results opens with no results for printers, say.

    I don't have a direct solution because in my opinion the windows search is a shadow of his own. I use the free version of lookeen for searching. Faster and better *Smile
