Windows Explorer, letters always trigger a search

Hi, i have the annoying issue that i always activate the windows search bar, when i type a letter while browsing files. On my other computer, the cursor jumps as expected to to the next file or folder that starts with the letter. Which settings do i need to change, to get the default setting back?

Go to folder options >> Select "View" tab >> Scroll down till last to find option>> 2nd option "Select the typed item in the view"...by mistakenly You must have selected "Automatically type in the search Box"., that created a problem.

Go to "Organise" in the command bar, choose "Folder and Search Options". Choose the "View" tab. Scroll down and check "Select the typed item in the view".
