Question How do I search within a folder without the search window?

Suddenly today (after many years) my folder settings changed and I have no idea why. Imagine I have 100 files in a folder and I open that folder in explorer. I press the letter "z" and the first file with "z" highlights. This is what I want and it also works in any Windows whether 32 or 64.

Now, all of a sudden with my Win 7, when I press "z", the search window on the top right opens and searches everywhere for anything with a "z" and changes the folder to a search folder.

Can someone please teach me how to get back to the other style. Thank you!

Try changing the folder options back to default settings.

Win + R to open the Run window, type in "control.exe folders" without quotes, go to the "Search" tab and click the default settings setting.

I'm hoping this'll fix it for you.
