In Outlook 365 I want to search my online archive for an exact phrase. When I put the search term in quotation marks, I still get results that do not exactly match the phrase.
Searching for an exact phrase in my inbox works fine.
A remedy is presented here, by editing a registry key: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/topic/unexpected-search-results-when-you-use-double-quotation-marks-to-search-items-in-a-mailbox-in-outlook-d1de87c9-2ce6-0ce7-69b6-a6e872ba14c8
However for some reason, the critical registry key is missing from my system:
Note xx.0 in this registry path corresponds to the Outlook version (16.0 = Outlook 2016, Outlook 2019 or Outlook for Office 365, 15.0 = Outlook 2013, 14.0 = Outlook 2010).
Can anyone suggest an alternative solution?
