I am rather late at acknowledging your guidance. Four months ... my apologies.
Your tip worked .. my fault .. I forgot I disabled indexing.
I am using "FileSearchEX" to search for contents
... and ... portable "Everything" to find files.
FileSearchEX is perfect for me to search my 4,280 txt files (contents). Takes about 8 seconds for a result. "Everything" file-find results are immediate
, as fast as I can type the file name.
"Everything" portable does not inhibit external storage device removal (the integrated/installed version can cause problems when safely removing)
I have assumed Start > Search ... uses the last index-list, so occasionally I do an "index update" -- haven't had any problems so far. Indexing slowed my PCs down considerably. A shame MS abandoned the WinXp "Find" dialog
in Windows 7
Thank you for an excellent forum
