I would like to get a software recommendation for searching files on Windows with advanced search features. Since the Search bar of Windows 10 is pretty slow and is not able to identify files faster, I am in need of a software which can search for files based on property, its usage history in minimum search time.
Look at Copernic Desktop Search (link below). I used it during the XP age of windows and loved it. A must have utility of that time.
There is also Everything from voidtools. It is portable and I use it nowadays.

There are many other options out there, however I find these 2 the best. Hope this helps. Regards.
It seems like Windows doesn't have a complete index of the locations you are searching within. Check out your indexing options first, Windows 7 and newer actually do quite a decent job on searching for stuff without 3rd party software.
Also, store the stuff you need to quickly access on SSD, if you have one. To improve your search results appearing with the Start Menu, you might want to substitute it with Classic Shell.
