    Search results through windows search not opening


    Hello,

    When I trying to search for anything by pressing Win+S, I get error message like this:
    Click image for larger version
    (Seems that search is performing on the HDD instead of SSD.

    I have 2 drives in my laptop: HDD (D:\ letter) and SSD (C:\), using SSD for booting, but there is OS on the HDD also.

    Is there a way to edit the default searching directory?

Is there any way of making the search results from a file search appear in a window? (essentially, like searching in windows 7) Often I search for a number of files in different locations and I have to keep re-searching the same term over and over again until I find what I'm looking for, because...
