I does. Sorry to contradict an opinion with a fact. Clicking on any of the available options automatically generates "that kind of string".
I was not telling an opinion, I was telling a fact. However, your "facts" become more and more odd.
You are most probably using a modified Windows shell. The syntax kind = XXXXX
is simply wrong. I am of course talking default, native command syntax in unmodified Windows.
For those reading this thread later, trying to fix a similar issue or learn something: Please do not let wrong advice, purposely given to advertise a third party solution to confuse you. Of course you will fail in your attempts to use Windows Search if you are using wrong command syntax.
You can test it yourself. Simply write kind:=folder
to search field (equal sign not necessary, also kind:folder
is OK). Notice how the search argument turns blue
(default color) to mark correct syntax:
This search by the way finds all folders on search location, and because of the syntax being correct it should also open the drop down selection of possible search types ("kind").
Then try this wrong syntax 4wd is offering to "show" how bad Windows Search is, writing kind = folder
to search field. You notice the text remains black because Windows does not recognize it as a search argument:
Nothing more to say.
