    Search for item on second hdd

    I have a second hdd installed on my desktop that has all my documents etc.My C drive is for the O/S only.
    My problem is when I select the search on the taskbar it only searches the C drive how will I set it to search the other internal drive??.Windows 10.
    Also awaiting new zoomstorm desktop should arrive next week.

    I believe you also have to click My Stuff before it searches on the other drives.

    OK so the task bar search is stupid at times.

    But you can still do it the old fashioned way.

    Open file explorer, click on drive, and use its search function.

    I only ever use this as it works!
