First I apologize if this thread is in the wrong section but I couldn't find a more fitting one like "Windows 7 use" (yes, this version needs a manual) so I posted in here.
I confronted several issues with search
. I wouldn't post this but there were too many cases that remained unsolved. One example is I can't locate the executable for paint
I typed paint
in search while in C:\ (system drive) with no success. Instead, it could find hundreds of files matching odd criteria, like if "paint" appeared in the name of the containing folder or in the file description, which is too advanced for a basic search.
And guess what -- the file with the actual name wasn't found.
I checked in Organize > Folder and search options > Search > When searching non-indexed locations > Include system directories but in vain.
It happened with files created by me as well.
So, 2 questions arise, as simple as they can be:
1. How can I check the options to search for a file regular/hidden/system in regular/hidden/system directories?
2. Options for input words location: name/content (not interested in others), regardless of indexations (I don't want to change location indexations for these options to work).
