Have you noticed that the search function in Windows 10 really sucks?

What a difference from Windows 7. Half the time I’ll search for something I know exists in my libraries, and Win10 won’t find it. I ask for a search only in my desktop, and it will search the whole drive. Even a file that’s clearly there won’t show up, either with a name search or a content search. Pfaugh.

Edit: “Everything” is not designed to search file contents, but it still works like a dream on filename searches, with endless options.

Enter “Everything,” by Voidtools (aka David Carpenter). A tiny 400K program, works like greased lightning. Check it out. It’s free (but he appreciates donations.)
