  1. Searching in Windows explorer


    Hello guys, I have a question about the behaviour of the windows explorer search.

    On my two personal computers when I open a folder which contains many other folders, I can press the button, for example, "r" to jump to the first folder that begins with the letter "r". I like this behaviour because it lets me jump to my destination quickly with just the keyboard.

    On my work PC however when I do the same thing it jumps straight to the "cool" search function of the explorer so I cant jump like on my personal PC's at home.

    I havent found any solutions to this.

    Does anyone have a solution fot this?

  3. 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.
