    I suppose you are right I still have to "click" files, apps is the only thing auto-searching...would still be convenient to auto files.

    Luckily the search suggestions are usually pretty good at helping to give you what you searching for. If not, then thank goodness it's only a click or Enter away for search results.

    Unfortunately there's not a search in "Music" category by default.

    However, you could search in "Files" for say "*.mp3" to see all .mp3 files, or search inside say your Music library in File Explorer.

    Music generally comes up first under "all" anyway, Microsoft has some work to do lol I would have to type ".flac" before everything I search.
