  1. Windows 10 and still not a simple search method, i dont think they ever will have a good searcher wtf is file explorer? its worse than windows xp hahaha, why can mac make things so easy but windows has to make it so ridiculously hard to find.

  2. While I appreciate that you have tried, I cannot understand the words used because of the broadness of the accent. In Windows XP and previous Windows versions there was a simple search facility from the start menu… Search> find files and folders> and it was done!
    Should there not be something similar in Windows 10? I used this do this dozens of times each day, but I have been unable to find files without laborious searching for the past four years!
    If someone can help, please e.mail me

  3. Thanks, everything makes sense except for the part beginning around 1:57, which shows a "Search My Stuff" feature in Cortana (I believe), which I do not appear to have on my Windows 10 Cortana or elsewhere. Please advise.

  4. how can I find lets say: I want w10 to search all filenames, that are .pdf files (well, pdf extention)for the word "sales", so it would find for examp. "sales managment.pdf" and "sales and money.pdf" but it would not show me "sales for all.doc". Any ideas?
