    searching for files and folders


    I seem to remember that in Windows 8 and 8.1, if I searched for a file but didn't remember the exact name of the file, I could type part of the name and the file would be found. But in Windows 10, if I don't type the whole name, and spell it correctly, it just doesn't find the file! Is there any way to change that?

    Try using "*" at the beginning of the search term.
