    Since I started using Win 10 home or work computer, search of file contents exact phrase...


    This is really a problem because I need always to search for names and addresses in files, and order makes a great difference in these cases.

    I use a portuguese version, but I was searching in English posts because I thought it would be easy to find a solution in those posts, but it seems there's no solution to the question "why is WIN 10 Search of file contents exact phrase broken?"

    :)

    Since I started using Win 10 (home or work computer), search of file contents exact phrase doesn't work. Is there some solution?

    Windows 10 - How to search an EXACT PHRASE in file contents

    When searching file contents for an exact phrase by using quotes such as "site assessment" the search results include
    all files that contain the words "site" or "assessment" and not the exact phrase.

    How do you limit the search results to exactly what is typed in quotes? Need help ASAP!!! Thank you!
