  • I don't think you have to "enable it" so to speak.
    Pretty sure it just begins looking at files/folders that begin w/ the letter(s) you start typing.

    In your provided example/screen-grab, if you start by typing "t", does "trsmanager" begin to appear?

    Also don't confuse this w/ the most-recent files list, but then you probably already knew that.
  • thank you
  • The file name box will only show you valid names as mentioned above. If you want to search a location for a file like "expenses_2014.xls" then type expen in the Search box at the top right hand corner, just below the red X (close) option
