    Hello,


    I recently got a new computer and I am having trouble with the search results in windows file explorer.


    I changed the indexing settings so I am able to search the contents of the files. However, the results only highlight my search term in the document's path and/or file name (even when the search term is present in the file itself). I would the search results to show and highlight the search term in the document itself.



    For instance, when I search "windows" the search results only show the file name, even when "windows" is in the document itself.

    What I want to have happen, is when I type "tru" for example, the search results show the contents of the folder. Please refer to the screenshot, below.

  2. File Explorer Search: Results not opening


    When I use File Explorer Search in my user folders, the results appear to have lost their association and do not open when I click them.

    Before search:

    Windows file explorer search results -- I want search results to show a preview of my... [​IMG]


    After search for "Get"

    Windows file explorer search results -- I want search results to show a preview of my... [​IMG]


    Note the icons have gone, the folder is not listed. Clicking the file does zilch.

    Windows Explorer Search Results

    When I do a search in Windows Explorer (I have Windows 10), some of the search results show pathnames to the files found; others do not - why ? And how do I get them to provide a path ?
