Hi,

If you did not get a response to your question earlier, (behind on my email, grin) my suggestion would be to unhide system and hidden files.� Typically, I believe the brackets are normally used for Windows system files, but am not certain about that, particularly in Win10.

I know there are buttons for favorites, categories of channels, etc,

But how does one simply tune up and down the dial with the new app like we used too in the old app?

I don’t assume anything,

You guys keep saying that I have to assume that index in order for the thing to work;

So does that mean because I get unpredictable results that the folders are not indexed?

Thank you muchly for your response;

I am using win10 not win7;

And yes, you are correct in saying that I am searching entire folders from file/windows explorer;

I have tried what you said:

When I do “content:word,

I get unpredictable results;

Sometimes it will find something,

And yet,

Other times it will not and I know there are files with those words in them;

Hi Mike,
I'm assuming that because you said that you want to search an entire folder, that you're using File Explorer (or Windows Explorer on Windows 7) to search, rather than using the start menu.

If the contents of the folder are indexed, then to find the word mike in one of the usual types of file that contains text, you should be able to just type the word mike.
By default, all the folders in your personal folder are indexed.
If the folder isn't in your folder, and hence not indexed, and you want to search for contents, then your options include:
1. In Indexing Options in the control panel, set the folder to be indexed.
2. Instead of typing mike, type content:mike. This may be quite slow, as it has to seach contents which are not indexed.

David.

Hi David,

 

Or you could type Doc: before your search term  So if you were looking for “David”, and typed “doc:David”, it would only search in documents.  No tabbing, just remembering three characters.

 

If you want to do the reverse and look for files by name, rather than content, then file: is your friend.

 

All the best

Hi John,
assuming that the files are somewhere in your personal folder, you can do this from the search box in the start menu. Normally when you search for files using the start menu, it only searches the names of files. However, if you filter the search results for documents, then the contents are searched as well. To do this:
1. In the search box, type in a word or phrase as normal.
2. Tab twice to move to the filters list, which is laid out as a row of items.
3. Press right arrow to move to find results in documents, and press enter. The focus returns to the search box, and Jaws reads out the first item in the filtered list of results.

David.

There’s a lot more than just file: as well.  You could type doc: and it will search specifically in document files.

 

You could type content: and it would search all file content but not file names.
