  1. Win 10 Search trouble


    Search won't find some files or folders when searching from C:\. If I drill down to the correct subdirectory then Search finds the file or folder.


    See my snips below that display the issue.


    I am searching for Microsoft.MicrosoftEdge Searching from C: does not find it. Searching from C:/Windows finds it. Another snip from my Win 10 laptop shows the normal result when searching from C:.


    I have already done the troubleshooter (no problems found) and the Rebuild (took about three hours).


    Vijay looked at this but no success.

    IE11 Google Toolbar no auto search suggestions, no search history?


    Since the last Win 10 update my Google Toolbar won't list any search suggestions as I type and there is no search history listed. The Google tool bar will allow a search, but after a few searches no search history shows and no "clear search" button is listed either.

    I have turnd on "Suggest searches as you type", and "store search histroy on my computer" in the Google Toolbar options.

    Any suggestions to fix this?

  3. Edge Search Does Not Permit Change of Region


    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.
    We have reproduce the issue here and we are able to access non-regional search for google using Microsoft Edge.
    I would suggest you to try the below steps and check if it helps.
    Step 1:

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:
    I suggest you to create a new user account and check if the issue occurs.

    Win 10 Search trouble

    Troubles with search


    Hi

    I haven noticed that there are a lot of people having troubles with the search app after upgrading to Windows 10. Since the threads are spread all over the forum it is kind of difficult to keep an overview of just how many people are actually affected. That's why I created this thread.

    Now what I would like you to do is the following: Post in this thread if you are currently experiencing troubles with Windows search or If you used to have problems with it but those problems could be fixed. Please provide the following info


    • Windows 10 or Windows 10 Pro, 32 bit or 64 bit
    • Upgraded or clean install
    • From what Windows version did you upgrade
    • Description of the problem
    • Resolved or not, if resolved how
    • Is Cortana enabled or disabled on your system, does the search's behaviour change if you enable/ disable Cortana?
    • Any other info that might be useful like error messages, event logs, what measures have you already taken to resolve the issue...

    Please don't post if you haven't got an problems with search. We already know that most people are not affected by this.
