  2. 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.

      to change the view.
    • Once changed, close the File Explorer.

    File Explorer Quick Access Search box: How to increase keyword history

    Is there a way to increase the number of remembered search items in the search box in file explorer and file open dialogs?

    The history shows 3 keywords which were previously searched. I would like it to be able to show up to 5 items (if available) for example.

    Is there a way to customize this?
