Microsoft’s Windows 10 has had search as one of its pain points ever since it debuted. Search was often panned for being slow, inaccurate and sometimes just for not finding anything at all. With Windows 10 1903, Microsoft has tackled that. First. Cortana and Search were split apart so the Windows team could tackle both individually. This means that Cortana gets better at Cortana things, while search gets better at Search things. With 1903, those seeds have already borne some fruit.

How to enhance Windows 10 Search in 1903

  1. Open Settings > Search > Searching Windows
  2. Microsoft has two options. ‘Classic Search’ and ‘Enhanced Search’. Enhanced Search brings the full power of Windows search to all folders on your PC, not just the default ones. There’s a one time index, but after that your PC’s search should be faster and more helpful than what it’s set to be by default.
