    Windows search not opening folders


    Hi everyone,

    Up until a few days ago when I clicked the windows key and typed C:\projects (or any folder) and clicked enter that location would open. This is no longer working and I have no idea why. I can still open applications but I can't open any folder locations. Is there a settings somewhere for this?

    UPDATE: After more testing, when I hit the windows key and type C:\projects and hit the enter key....Nothing happens. However if I do the same procedure but instead click on C:\projects with my mouse the folder opens. So it seems only the enter key won't open the folder.


    Thanks,

    I had never tried to do this before, however this is how my Windows 10 system functions as well. Is it possible this changed in an update and this is simply working as intended.

    I'm not sure if this is what was intended. I simply wish it would continue to function with the ENTER key.
