    Quick Find By Typing First Few Letters Of File Name?

    i REALLY miss, and don't know why i can't do it with Windows 10, typing the first few letters of a file name and having it automatically highlighted!!!

    i tried googling this, but i can't find it. i would be surprised if no one else has talked about this though so many be i am not using the right phrasing.

    It works as usual for me inside Windows Explorer. I use Total Commander though. Win10 Home x64. Maybe the windows is out of focus. Tried clicking somewhere in the window first?

    i used CCleaner and restarted and it works except one particular folder with music in it. For some reason it just won't do it and makes that windows error sound. It seems to only be this one folder right now, so whatever.
