Windows 10 File Explorer search issues

Hello,

Ever since a Windows 10 update I'm having issues with the File Explorer search bar. I'm talking about the one that allows me to search in my files. Before I could just type a letter or a start of a word and it will start showing me results, now I have to type exactly what I need and press enter for it to actually find anything. Beyond that, at times, it won't let me even enter anything into the search bar.

Any idea how to fix this?

Thank you.

From the control panel, select the search engine you want to edit. Click Search features from the menu on the left and then click the Autcomplete tab. Click on the slider to set Enable autocomplete to On. It can take up to 2-4 days for autocomplete to start appearing on your search engine. Hopefully this helps.
