Quick access (File Explorer) fails to search Pictures folder

  • Quick access contains the folders: Documents, Music, Pictures, Video
  • On the right side of the window, there is a Quick access search field. Entering a search will find matching files in 3 folders but not matching files in the Pictures folder.
  • If I navigate directly to the Pictures folder then the search will work.
  • I’d like to fix where ever the problem is – with Quick access or the Pictures folder – and have QA searches work on all 4 folders.

I’ve tried re-indexing / rebuilding the index and several other things, but the problem still remains. Crossing my fingers that someone here will post the much-hoped for solution!
