Windows 10: Folder search gives me results that I'm not looking for

    Folder search gives me results that I'm not looking for


    When I do a search in a folder, I get results back that have nothing to do with what I searched for.

    anyone know how to fix?


    Edit: If I set "name:" without the quotes before a search I get what I'm looking for. How do I set that as default behavior?

    WinKey+X -> control panel -> File explorer options -> Search -> uncheck "search in name and file content"
    (the words may not be accurate, my Windows is not in english)
