It seems that when i perform a search on the hard drive, it does not search into the Windows folder...

Is there any way to change that??

In the "Search Options", "Advanced Options", have you put a tick in "Search System Folders" and "Search Hidden files and Folders". If these aren't ticked the search of Windows will be very fast and may appear as if it wasn't searched.

This below is a tweak that will do it for you:-

Copy and Paste the info between the lines into Notepad and save it onto your Desktop as:-

FindAll.reg

You must remove the word wrap on the second line

Then just double-click the file.

------------------Begin Copy and Paste---------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"CaseSensitive"=dword:00000000
"IncludeSubFolders"=dword:00000001
"SearchHidden"=dword:00000001
"SearchSlowFiles"=dword:00000000
"SearchSystemDirs"=dword:00000001
-----------------End Copy and Paste-------------------------------------------
Now this one below will do the same but remove that annoying Search Assistant too:-


Copy and Paste the info between the lines into Notepad and save it onto your Desktop as:-

NoAssist.reg

You must remove the word wrap on line 4 and 6

Then just double-click the file.

------------------Begin Copy and Paste---------------------------------------
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Use Search Asst"="no"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\CabinetState]
"Use Search Asst"="no"

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer]
"CaseSensitive"=dword:00000000
"IncludeSubFolders"=dword:00000001
"SearchHidden"=dword:00000001
"SearchSlowFiles"=dword:00000000
"SearchSystemDirs"=dword:00000001
-----------------End Copy and Paste-------------------------------------------

This works great for the options inside "Advanced options" but i still have to check the "Advanced options" box. Is there a way to check it by default?

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
