    windows search question?


    I found that if I have a file with name, for example 1234.mp4 then I 'll be able to find it with searching keyword 1234

    but if a file is with name, for example a1234.mp4, and I search with keywords 1234, then I won't be able to find out the file.

    Any way to fix this?
