    Hi, not sure you can do that from the GUI as an option.. unless I've missed sthg... but file manager replacements can...! (Which is why I never use search in explorer).

    But it can be done: the search field actually uses Advanced Query Syntax
    For example, I have a folder containing files where some have names containing 'China' some have content with 'China' and some are in a path with a folder name 'China.

    It looks as if if I enter

    filename:China

    in the search box, I restrict results to those files whose names contain China.

    Advanced Query Syntax (Windows)

    Probably not the answer you were hoping for...
