    File Explorer Search: Results not opening

    When I use File Explorer Search in my user folders, the results appear to have lost their association and do not open when I click them.

    Before search:

    After search for "Get"
    Click image for larger version.

    Note the icons have gone, the folder is not listed. Clicking the file does zilch.
