  • Question

  • There are many windows 10 computers in our office. on some windows 10, we can't find some files when we use windows default search engine. we must add ' * ' ahead of keyword, then, I can get all my files I need. However, some of windows 10 don't need to add the ' * '  ahead of the keyword, they can show all files we need. 

    I tried to rebuild the search engine a few times. I got same problem. 

    I tried to change the search engine as 'search file name and contents', then the search engine need long time to find all my files. it's word. However, some of windows 10 don't need change this setting. they just use the default setting to find all my files quickly. 

    My I know how I can fix the problem?

  • Know that Windows Search will convert your query into precise AQS and unless you are specific in your queries, Windows will guess what AQS you actually meant.
