Windows 7: Search doesn't seem to be working

Search doesn't seem to be working

Does Win 7 search sub directories in Libraries too? I looks like I have it turned on, but often returns nothing.

Thanks,

Hello Reid,

Double check your Search settings to see if it set like the example in the link for it to search everywhere for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks all check that out. When you search a library, does it search sub folders too?

Thanks,

Yep, it sure will, but you will need to have the index turned on to be able to search the Libraries though. It is on by default.
