  1. Windows Explorer can not find files


    OS Build 19041.508

    So I open Windows Explorer in my "home" folder. In the left column (Navigation Pane) it shows the "Quick Access" points with thumbtacks. I select Documents and then enter the partial file name I want to search for. I get "No items match your search".

    If I clear the search criteria and scroll down, I can SEE SEVERAL FILES that would match the search, but some how these have been filtered out ! What am I doing wrong ?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows Explorer Replacement?

    I don't use Internet Explorer, I meant the thing where you can look at files etc. Hotkey Windows+E. Maybe it's the wrong name in english though. *Stick Out Tongue Windows Explorer can not find files :p

    Windows Explorer can not find files

    Some files listed in Windows Explorer are blue font

    I seem to have run out of room on a Windows XP Pro system. I tried to defrag but don't have but 7% room available. I looked in Windows Explorer to try to find some huge files that might be corrupt and I see a few that are listed in blue. What does that mean? I have not compressed anything on purpose. Thanks
