Content search result highlighting not consistent
The highlighting of content search results isn't consistent in Windows 7. When searching for content text across several hundred .doc or .txt files within a single folder, the search result term is sometimes highlighted and sometimes not.
It appears the file names containing the search term are accurately displayed. However if view | content is enabled in Explorer, the highlighted found string and surrounding text are not consistently displayed.
Since you can't reliably see the search results within a surrounding text fragment, this makes it difficult to assess the search results without manually inspecting each file with another program.
Has anyone noticed this? Is there a solution or workaround?
Content indexing is enabled for the file type and indexes recently rebuilt.
(1) In Explorer navigate to the folder holding the .txt or .doc files
(2) Configure Explorer to show content: view | content
(3) Enter a search string for content some of the files will have
(4) Note search results doesn't consistently show the found term highlighted within the surrounding text
