Why Windows Explorer Search not work?
Posted on 2011-10-24
The search feature of Windows Explorer recently broke. Example: I specify"run" in the "A word or phrase in the file" box, and a folder in "Look in", (All Files and Folders)"Type of file". I click Search, and it returns a subset of the files containing that word. The extensions are .txt. .xslx. .xml.
Other extensions such as .a, .b, .py are ignored.
What could be wrong? How do I fix this?
In another folder I get some but not all of the relevant .py files.
