    File explorer search history is not clearing


    Hi

    I have gone through all the steps in the following thread, but my file search history is not clearing or updating. Search terms clear, but the old search reappears with deleted files on it.

    Search History in File Explorer - Clear in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Old, but appears to apply still (same registry entry exists).

    Note the comment about the crawl scope.
