In my first post I told the truth, there's no need to download and install any third party tools for a task so simple as this, giving valid examples with screenshots. Nothing personal, no wrong information, nothing that is not true. And, if I may add, I did it quite politely. Period.

My second response was to correct some wrong information readers could get from your response to my first post. Windows Search really needs no setting up, when used from Explorer. And the one example you gave what extra you get with third party search tools, the preview, I just showed that it is native in Windows Search. Last but not least I told my opinion in answering you question why do so many people find Windows Search difficult.

One more time, after typing the above, I read my responses through. I really do not understand why you took this so personally?

Over and out, issue solved. Unsubscribing.

I did not take it personally, and neither should you. Getting emotionally involved in these things is not a good idea.

I don't mind anybody disagreeing with my opinions, and I am not always right in any case. I just don't like bad manners.

I'd rather ask this privately but you have disabled both VM and PM and I do not have your email, so I have to say this publicly.

You are accusing me of bad manners in this thread. Please provide an example. I am working quite hard at the moment with myself, not wanting to start personally insulting you as you are insulting me. Please at least be a man enough to show me which part of my responses in this thread you consider being "bad manners".

So, to finish this in a civilized way and clear the air, I ask you to show me which part of my words can be taken as you told earlier:

I don't think this is going anywhere useful.

What I am or am not "man enough" to do is also not germane to the issue. That is another example of inappropriate language. You seem to like all sorts of "challenges". It is not appropriate to publicly challenge somebody's manhood or honour in this fashion.

I told you why I did not like how you wrote what you wrote, it was arrogant and ill-mannered. You are obviously very passionate about some things, which is fair enough, but it apparently colours your judgement and your language usage. Indeed, it comes across as sneering.

Some of this is doubtless due to your not being a native speaker.

However this may be, in my opinion it would be silly for you to unsubscribe, you obviously enjoy what you do, and you help a lot of people.

Can we please simply drop the issue now? It isn't helping anybody.

As mentioned, I would rather have this conversation privately but you have disabled PM's so it's a no go.

That language thing was a punch below the belt. My English is good enough to understand that in my responses to OP and you I have been quite polite, offering valid and simple solutions and not insulted you personally as you insult me all the time.

I am really sorry about this. I could not even think you would feel so offended only because I offered OP a more elegant and simple solution, or that I told my honest opinion about unnecessary steps in solving a minor issue.

Amazed, very sincere

If you are determined to interpret everything I write as an insult, while apparently remaining completely oblivious of your own insulting manner, there is nothing at all I can do about it.

I was not attempting to "punch" you anywhere, or insult you in any way. I was merely trying to explain what you asked me to explain. If you don't like the explanation, there is nothing I can do about that either.

Your own apparently emotionally coloured interpretation of things is skewing your perception.

I wont answer any further posts, because it is simply a waste of time.

If you want my advice, which you almost certainly don't, then just calm down and forget the whole thing.

A pleasure George, hope you got sorted out. My apologies for the little public spat.

Guys I am very new here but have been reading a lot of useful threads, and here is my opinion with this one.

After the first 2 useful replies this thread became a game of getting one up on each other which really gets boring fast...Chill out and drop the ego chasing intellectual showcasing and stick to helping people out, which members on this forum do well...Cheers
