I have used Windows 10 in two different laptops and also reinstalled a few times but i have always had a problem with the search function. I tried a few tips i found online related to indexing but I am still not satisfied with the way everything works.
When I was using Windows 7 i used to be able to use the search box in file explorer to find any file or document and I used to even be able to search for content within documents (such as word documents).
I used to love this function.
I have never been able to do this on Windows 10. I don't know if there is something wrong with my devices/operating system or if the search function is just simply very bad on Windows 10.
1) Is anyone able to confirm if the problem is just mine? Or is Windows 10's search function just bad?
To illustrate how bad my problem is:
- Sometimes there is a document inside a folder. The folder is displayed on my screen and let's say my document is called "to do list"
- Within that folder I use the search function and type in "to" "do" "to do" "to do list" or any other variation which should show me the document i am looking for.
- However, NO document shows up in my search even though I know 100% the document is right there!!!
This is driving me crazy and I hate Windows 10 because the search function is sooo horrible
