A friend made me paid attention me to this feature of the windows explorer search:

When you make a search, sometimes, some of the hits appear highlighted in yellow in their context in the preview, and some don't.

enter image description here

How does windows explorer choose what to highlight ? Can this setting be modified in some way?

  • Look at the example. The hit that brought the pdf to the search result is not shown on the preview, while in the txt it is shown. In this example, casually, one is a plain text file and a pdf but ive seen it happen with only pdfs results – cladelpino Aug 11 '18 at 3:17
