    Search cannot find files


    I have hundreds of videos but when I try to search for them by using IN this PC the Kind:=video command the search come up empty. It simply cannot find anything I ask it to search for. I do not want to use third party search applications. I just want it to work.
    Does anyone have a solution?

    Windows 10 search is broken. It only search on the drive, where windows 10 is installed - I have 2 disk, but I cant get it to search the second disk.

    Hi, if Windows search won't work for you try Locate32 (which indexes fast and searches content), Everything (more basic)...for example.

    But focussing on (file) explorer, here's how it should work:
    In explorer click the Search tab, then choose
    Advanced Options
    Change Indexed Locations
    Modify
    - and add the partitions/disks etc you wish to index.
