Hi J M,
Thank you for this wonderful and quick tip. It works GREAT!!! I was using longer commands to accomplish the same function.
My usual method, rather than searching from the “start search” box, is to go into the drive or folder I know the file is located, hit f3 (which really just moves my cursor two tab positions back from the list view) and type in the search term. It works flawlessly, most of the time, and is really fast at least on my internal drives (both HDD and SSD).
Personally, if you do a lot of searching by file name I'd strongly suggest at some point that you download and install Search Everything from voidtools.com.
