    File Explorer Search-"Limit to search on name" not working

    The File explorer option is bugged: whatever option one chooses: search names, url, or contents: the result total is that of search "contents". For most searches, this gives 12000 files instead of say 3. Cortana does give the three, but it's not at all a satisfactory solution as it doesn't show the explorer tree.

    Also, in between, I have used a Mac and there is a search function that you may consider:
    It allows to specify the search several unattached words in the name AND in a time period AND a type.
    Example : name: Report + name: Geneva + date: 30 March-10 April + type: pptx
    THis is most useful for limiting the number of results in very large databases inside Explorer.

    Found the solution: type name:abc, date: xx/yy/zz etc.
