Windows 10 May 2020 update File explorer improvements:
File explorer search is now powered by Windows Search. Here is how the search experience has been improved in version 2004.
- As you type in File Explorer’s search box, you’ll now see a dropdown populated with suggested files.
- These improved results can be launched directly by clicking the entry in the new suggestions box, or if you want to open the file location, just right-click the entry and there’ll be an option to do so.
- If you need to use commands or dig deeper into non-indexed locations, you can still press enter and populate the view with the traditional search results.
- This change will help integrate your OneDrive content online with the traditional indexed results.
Also, when you enable the Tablet mode in version 2004 the File explorer changes to a touch-optimized UI as shown in the image below.
