  1. Windows Search Results keeps switching view


    Hi,

    I really really hope someone can help me. My issue is that whenever I search for a file and it takes me to all my results, as soon as I double click a folder within the results it will take me to that particular folder and then after 1/2 second, it will automatically take me back to my search results. It's so annoying.

    Even if I click on ‘downloads’ or ‘documents’ it still switches back to the search results window every time. I have to close the explorer window and start again.

    I am running Windows 10 version 1909.

    Many thanks

    :)

  2. Windows Search Results keeps switching view

    Thanks for your reply. It's been happening ever since I updated to version 1909. If I made a search, for example, 'phonics', it will show the results for this in a list. Then if I open up a folder within the search results list, it will open it up and then search again automatically within that folder for 'phonics' again. Then if I click on documents or downloads or music in the navigation pane, it will keep searching for the word 'phonics' within that folder.

    Thank you for the detailed response. To change the search result's view from content to list, we suggest following the steps below:

    • Open the File Explorer and try to search for files.
    • In the toolbar, open the View tab and click List
      to change the view.
    • Once changed, close the File Explorer.
    • Open the File Explorer again and try to search to see if the setting has been retained.

    After performing the steps above, reply back to us so we can provide additional help.
