    I have Windows 10. With a folder of Excel files open, if I press CTRL+F, Windows places the cursor into the Search window for me. Is this not what happens for you? Seems to be working fine here.

    This really isn't an Excel question per se. I am moving it to the appropriate section of the forum.
