    Windows 10 File Explorer - Scroll bar keeps jumping to top of folder files.

    Unable to find these options in Windows 10 Home Version (file) explorer.

    What version were these options available?

    Hi, not sure you can do that from the GUI as an option.. unless I've missed sthg... but file manager replacements can...! (Which is why I never use search in explorer).

    But it can be done: the search field actually uses Advanced Query Syntax
    For example, I have a folder containing files where some have names containing 'China' some have content with 'China' and some are in a path with a folder name 'China.

    It looks as if if I enter

    filename:China

    in the search box, I restrict results to those files whose names contain China.

    Advanced Query Syntax (Windows)

    Probably not the answer you were hoping for...*092
