    Windows 10 search far worse than Windows 8.3

    I hate the search in Windows 10. It never finds files that were always found searching in Windows 8. Windows 10 searching is virtually useless. Under windows 8, one could retain the search results. I have not found how to do this in Windows 8. Nor does windows 10 seem to be aware of the content of my Word files. It can never find what am looking for, Windows 8 could.

    That is really my only complaint about Windows 10. The search, even with what's her name, is a big step backwards. Unacceptable.
