In Windows 10 I could search for something (e.g. photos) by typing partial filename in Start menu and in the list of results displayed there, I could click "Open file location" on the item to open File Explorer window in the folder with the result. At the same time, list of results remained open, so I could repeat the action with other items too just by clicking "Open file location" on them.

Now, after upgrading to Windows 11, this is not possible: when I click the item in the list of search results, the Start menu immediately closes and I need to repeat search again and again to open folders with further results in File Explorer.

I wonder if there is a setting in GUI or a registry "hack" that could bring this behavior back?
