    Why are all results sorted by file size with no option to sort them by date, name, etc?

    Search is returning mostly garbage results. Of course most 200 page PDF's on my machine will contain all of the search keywords.

    Is this driving anyone else crazy? Unless I can remember the complete file name of what I am looking for AND add the extension I'm screwed now. :mad:

    even with the exact file/folder name I am getting screwed for much of the same reason. A bunch of PDFs show up and that's the end of that -- it never thought there may be a folder by the exact same name :(
